    I’m so saddened to hear this. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Byrd but have nothing but wonderful memories of him and the time I spent with him. I often thought of him and your family over the years. Praying for the family and friends during this difficult time. Stay strong and trust in God!

  2. Troy Jelley

    So sorry for your loss! My heart is breaking for you all! Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for the family.

    In Christian love,

    Dear JJ, Suzie and all of Ben’s family,
    We are so very sorry to hear about Ben saying good-bye from his earthly life at such a young age. Never is it easy to “lose” a loved one and especially suddenly.

    May your cherished memories of loving times together support you as each of you support each other.
    Our prayers,
    Bill and Anita
