Stephanie and Rene,
I am heartbroken to hear of Ben's passing. I can't imagine what you are going through right now and I want you to know my heart is with you as you go.

October 10, 2019 | Emily Davies (Geis) - Swampscott, MA -- USA

I am so incredibly sorry to hear this news. Ben was truly one of a kind- he had such a kind heart, depth of character, and an amazing sense of integrity. He meant the world to me in high school and was such an amazing friend to me and so many others. He was wise beyond his years. My tthoughts are with your family and I am so sorry for your pain. He will be missed by so many.

Please accept our condolences for the tragic lost of Ben's life.

May his soul rest in peace.

As it's said:
"...may his soul be bound up in the bond of life with the souls of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah, and with the other righteous men and women who are in Gan Eden; and let us say, Amen."

I can only imagine how you are feeling - and my heart goes out to you- when I lost my wife my life was turned upside down and only the love of family and friends got me on the other side. Ben sounded like a wonderful young man who made life a special place. His contribution to making our world just a little better is really all we can ask of any of us

Know that there are many of us who are hurting for you - I know this does not mean any thing right now but as time goes on your hurt will fade and the good times will shine through. I know from experience- but for now know there is a big world thinking of you and trying to imagine how we can help.

With lots of love--

your friend

I can't begin to imagine the loss that you feel. I don't think that we, as parents, are ever prepared for the loss of our children. As a parent, I am deeply saddened by this and am feeling your pain. My deepest condolences to you and Stephanie and the entire family.

Ben was a total sweetheart. He was a very nice person. When I first started going to the Bohemian in Brunswick, he was the first one who made a Latte for me. My deepest condolences to his whole family.

Words can not possibly begin to explain how profoundly sad we all feel about Ben's passing. He was very special to me and to everyone who knew him. Ben, you were taken much too early and although I mourn you I know that you made such an impact on so many lives that you will live on in our hearts and memories.
God Bless you and your family.

I am proud to say that you were such a great friend Ben. I will never forget all the laughs we had in our performing arts days. Thanks for trying to teach me to pick locks, and putting up with my less than useful computer mind. The world is losing a beautiful soul, you will be forever missed old friend.

Dear Ben, you are such an amazing human! A friend to everyone who needed one. Through your kind heart you’ve made a difference in so many lives from when you were a young child to the wonderful man you had become. You will be missed terribly and leave many heartbroken to include my son. I only hope your family, loved ones, and friends find comfort and laughter in your memory during this most difficult time as they travel the path of life without you. Deep condolences to your family for the loss of such a treasure.I will keep them in my prayers. May you Rest In Peace. Gone to soon.
