    Martha, Debbie, & Family,

    We are so very sorry to hear about the passing of Ben. My heart goes out to you and your family. Ben was a good man and a very genuine person.

    The times we would bring Lindsey over for Debbies birthday parties, I always enjoyed conversations with him. He loved sharring good stories about his family and the farm. I don’t think I ever saw him that he didn’t have a smile on his face. I know all of you will deeply miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Regretfully, we will be out of town during visition and the funeral.

    Please let us know if there is anything that our family can do for your family.

    With Christian Love,
    The Tyler Family (Tom, Kim, Lindsey & Tana)
