In memory of one of the finest Christian men that I have ever met. I worked with Ben for several years and just being in his presence inspired me to be a better person. He is definitely now in the presence of the Lord. Condolences to Blanche and the entire Calfee family.

Ben lead me to Christ. He was persistent but gentle in his lessons. Ben, I honor your memory and thank you for leading me to my Savior. God is now keeping his promise to you in paradise for your loyal love.

I miss you dear friend.
