  2. Dearest Sharon, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. Please know you and your family are in our prayers: for comfort in your time of sadness, but also for moments of joy when you remember the many wonderful moments you had with Ben.
    I know of a pastor who has cerebral palsy. He was asked once how he thinks he’ll feel when, in heaven, he will be made healthy. His answer? He said when we’re finally in the presence of the Lord, his magnificence will so great that all we’ll be able to do is praise him! That our bodies being healed will seem like a minor thing compared to meeting him face-to-face.
    Love and blessings always. Carol and Dave Wilkerson

  8. Dear Sharon, Paul and Family,

    I am sending thoughts, and prayers to you during this time of loss.

  9. Ben was a wonderful childhood companion. We spent time together during our elementary years exploring the Skyway neighborhood, playing computer games in his basement and taking trips with Paul to the observatory to camp and look at the stars. He was one of the most genuine and kind souls I’ve had the privilege of knowing. My deepest sympathies to his family during this time of grieving and may Ben be at peace.

  10. Sharon, my deepest condolences on the loss of your son. I did not know your son personally but I have heard your Mother’s heart as you have spoken of him. You will always have him in that special place forever; you will absorb that sorrow with God’s love and grace. May the Lord comfort and keep you strong during your time of grieving. Be blessed my friend, and draw close to Him, those you love and who love you.
