Ben, the world is a lot darker now that you’re gone. You were so loved and we hope you knew that. We would give anything to have you for one more day. Even in this tragedy there was some light; the Lifeline of Ohio was able to find homes for all of Ben's organs, retinas, and tissue. Ben will be giving life and quality of life to almost 60 people. We believe this would make him very happy. We are encouraging people to make donations in Ben's name to the Lifeline of Ohio. Information can be found at www.LifelineofOhio.org.
