Celebrating the life of Benjamin Albert Williams
Thank you for signing Benjamin Albert Williams's Guestbook
I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] which says that Jehovah God will swallow up death forever. Also [Revelations 21:3-5] says that God wiall wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
With Deep Sympathy.

I'm sorry to hear of Ben's passing. He was a good man who loved his wife, boys and nephew and spoke of them often. He loved life, a good cigar, a swallow of Mill Stream, a good lunch out with his wife or just staying home and cooking out for his friends and family. It was a pleasure to know him as a police officer and coworker at Corning. He took a shine to me early on because we knew and worked with alot of the same people and didn't mind putting me in my place when I needed it. I hope the family finds peace and Ben is in a better place.

Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.
