I remember as a child visiting my grandmother in Tennessee in the summer, watching the cows, running after chickens, and picking blackberries! We would always play with our cousin Benny when we came. He was so fun, and funny, and sweet.....I will never forget those days! May you peacefully rest in God's loving embrace dear one, until we all see each other again. 🙏

Dear Jennifer and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Ben's passing. I will always remember the unique laugh he had while watching the 3 Stooges that we could hear clear across the house, the trouble we'd be in for being too loud 😂, and the dedication he had for you all. I am sorry I am unable to come to the service, but all of you are in my prayers. Love you!!!
