  3. Nana,
    Did Ben ever tell you the story about the ‘divine appointment’ that he and I had at the Park in Baytown while we were waiting for Bruce’s arrival? Ben pulled up in the truck close to this bench where a gentleman was sitting. We got out of the vehicle, Ben grabbed his guitar, and we walked over to the bench and introduced ourselves. Ben asked the man, “If he knew his friend Jesus?” He started singing “Amazing Grace.” I joined in harmonizing. As we were singing I noticed that the ducks in the pond started swimming towards us. Not just a duck or two but all of them. They climbed out of the pond, up onto the banking, formed a semi-circle around us, sat down, and listened as Ben sang and then spoke to this man. I looked down in the water and also noticed all the fish that were swimming back and forth in front of us as Ben witnessed to this gentleman. It wasn’t until Ben finished and we got up to leave that the ducks started to return to the pond and the fish started to swim away. I have never experienced anything like it before. It was absolutely amazing! God is so good and He is always present when we need Him!
    Love you Nan and family!
    Deb and Bruce

  4. Dear Nana,
    If I were there, I would give you a great big hug! We were so sorry to hear of Ben’s passing out of our midst but rejoice that he has completed his purpose here on Earth and is now in his Eternal Home and will be waiting to greet you & so many one day!
    May the love of God, family and friends bring you peace and comfort as you go through the coming days. Sorry we were unable to be at the services but will always remember the pleasant conversation we had last year in Wal-Mart! I know that was a “God-incidence”!
    In Christian Love & prayers ,
    Earl & Betty
