My heart aches at hearing this news. Please pray for Katie and her family. Here is the email that was waiting in my inbox early this morning.
I again want to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers over these last few days, they have been appreciated and felt.
I am so sad to say that Ben passed away at about 9pm this evening (3/6/09). He is with the LORD and we know that we will see him again.....we ask for continued prayer as we will miss him beyond words. He brought so much JOY to so many and I am thankful I had 29 years with him.
