We would like to express our deepest condolences and to also let the Prange Family know that we recently sent Care Packages to American troops in the war zones. Each box carried a dedication sheet that includes the name, service information and a photo of your loved one, Benjamin G. Prange US Army Staff Sergeant. We recognize that this is a humble tribute, but we wanted you to know that it is heartfelt and made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals in the youth hockey community and beyond. We will not forget. May God Bless you and keep you strong.

I know there are no words to say at this time, except how sorry that I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. Benjamin will never be forgotten.
For you every single soldier
Those who served so honorable
Your life was forever altered
While I'm home safe and free
I stand with grateful admiration
I stand respectful and so proud
I know I'm only a civilian
And I don't even know if it's allowed.
But I salute you; allow me the honor to salute you with permission let me say. Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part. I salute you.
For those missing in action;for those who didn't make it home.
I know you're in God's presence you are not alone.
For every neatly folded flag;for every shattered family
I will do the only thing I know to dignify your memory.
I salute you, allow me the honor to salute you with permission let me say even though I hold no rank know that from my heart my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part. I salute you.
I Salute You.

Isaiah 6:8, Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" It seems this has been repeated by so many brave and selfless service members, among them Benjamin, who said, here I am send me and paid the ultimate price. May God bless you and surround you with his blessings. While your feelings cannot be washed away, I believe in the strength of human spirit and know in my heart, while many tears will come and go, you will remember Benjamin, with a proud feeling, Alan Radke, proud Army Dad, American Red Cross SAF volunteer, veteran. You are in my prayers.

Now he lays his eyes to sleep
Ours full of sorrow as they weep
As he rides the light to heaven
I thank The Lord I got to know him
As he died for our sake
I pray The Lord for him to take
GOD REST his soul on this day
And BLESS his family as they stay
--- forever Ben, the Ellzey's
