To the Family, Friends and the many Loved Ones that have been lucky enough to have crossed paths in life with Benjamin Harrison Gilbert. Ben's enormous smile along with the twinkle in his eyes always reminded us of the way he lived his life. Whether you were his best friend or someone that he had just met, his heart always pointed him in the direction of helping others, many times shorting himself to better the person or situation in front of him. I am sure that God has made a comfortable seat for Ben to watch over all of us as we go through life. I hope that everyone that has been blessed by knowing Ben can slow down for a minute, look up into the night sky, see the twinkle of a star and be aware of Benjamin's heart and love that he shared so freely with all of us ! ! ! We can only hope to have learned from Ben and share these lessons with others in our lives.

Harrison and Sherry words can’t begin to tell you both how very sorry we are for your loss! You both were great parents and it was obvious if you knew Ben. Harrison I was telling Jim how he looked at you in admiration watching you in the cabinet shop. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. May God help the two of you as well as the rest of your family through this! Dear God please be with this family!

Sherry, what a fine young man you raised. As parents, we worry about everything and I know nothing can prepare us for a loss like you've suffered. I hope you can take some comfort in knowing how much he was admired. Always a smile and a kind word.....that was Ben. I'm so sorry for your loss.
