We send condolences to his family. Ben, Thank you for these videos. They will help many people to know what you have experienced.
To Ben's family, In the beginning the remembrances of your son's passing will be very prominent in your lives, but as time goes on, the memories of Ben's life will loom larger and larger, obstructing the sadder or more bittersweet ones.

UPDATE: December 30, 2011 Ben's funeral was attended by more than 1500 people. More than that, couldn't get in. People who were there said that his family, especially sister Ally, and his mother Deanne especially modeled the strong faith that Ben so clearly had. Ben, just as you had thought, they made you proud with their courage and their conviction of their faith. Godspeed.
UPDATE: This is an additional later post of ours concerning Ben Breedlove, and his family's new book, written by his sister Ally.
