The memories of your years together will help get you through these tough days.. May he Rest In Peace..

Dear Pat,
We send our sincere and deepest sympathy to you and the Family upon the passing of Ben. . Over the years, we have enjoyed happy times with him at family gatherings. Ben was a real gentleman, soft spoken and kindhearted, with a good sense of humour.. – a very active and fit man who could fool us with his youthful appearance and deeds..
Having enjoyed many happy years together, you have lots of good memories to carry you through this time of grief and beyond. Wishing you rainbow days after the clouds dissipate.. With special thoughts,,
Wanda, Jim and family
