  1. What a lovely speech by Ben. He was so well spoken and confident. You must be so proud.
    It makes my heart break knowing he won’t be here to continue to inspire and uplift others. But I am so glad that I got the chance to hear him speak on a subject that is affecting me right now- a big idea that I want to bring to life. His words encourage me to keep dreaming and moving forward. Thank you for sharing. He was a gift.

  2. I had the honor of spending some time with Ben as his teacher and work supervisor during his time in college. He impressed me as a deeply thoughtful young man and he inspired me to always strive to do better, for myself, and for others. He is greatly missed.

  3. Sounds like Benjamin was one remarkable soul. Such a brilliant light in the world. I am heartbroken for you all and so very sorry for your loss, Uncle Robert and Katerina.
