Kay, Kyle, Dee, Dan, and Jonathan,

I am sorry to learn of Ben''s passing. I have so many great memories of being blessed to have "the Kings" as my friends and neighbors growing up. We all knew when it was time for the King boys to come home no matter how far away we were playing. Ben could call 'em home! Now Ben has been called home. May God bless you all.
