Philip and Michelle, I am so sorry to hear of your son passing. Prayers for you all. Philip, I worked for your Dad as his hygienist back in 1979 to 1985. I cleaned your teeth as a young man.
May God wrap His loving arms around you all as you walk this "valley." One day at a time.
With deepest sympathy,

Ben was such a wonderful young man! He and Marcus had been great friends since they were little guys in K or 1st grade. We are totally heartbroken and praying for you all. Ben was loved by so many and will always hold a place in our hearts. Praying for you during this very tough time.
