I wish to express my deepest sympathy to Bens family. I spoke to Ben several times at the time I started to track my families history and he was most helpful. I am the Great Great Granddaughter of Martina and Rosalie Bicek and I have gone on to collect a large amount of our families history dating back to Europe.

My sincere sympathy for your loss. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. I came to know Ben as an usher at St. Mary of Celle parish about 13 years ago. Ben was kind and generous. He also was very helpful . He helped me repair my front door at my condo. An expert in doors , We were able to get door back to 100%. We also went out for pizza after mass. I will miss Ben and his perspectives on the week. With Sympathy , Tom Hlavacek
