So sorry to hear about the passing of Benjamin. So thankful for our God's eagerness to bring back to life all those sleeping in death. ~ Job 14:14,15. He will resurrect Benjamin very soon.

My condolences to the family of Mr. Forbes. God's promise of the resurrection and an end to death is indeed a comfort to us when our loved one passes. John 5:28 and Isaiah 25:8 remind us of these truths. We can trust in Jehovah's words.

Heartfelt Condolences to the Forbes family, So sorry to hear of your loss. I first knew Benjie from our Good Shepherd and Sunday school days, if my memory serves me right, he would visit Joan and Will Morgan and his two cousin's Tim and Janice, mostly at weekend's, in Prospect, where I once lived, many years ago, until I moved to the UK. Although it is well over 50 years since I last saw Benjie, who was age possibly 12 to 14, I will always remember him as a shy, always smiling, chubby, not very talkative lad. A big shame our paths didn't cross as grown-ups. Gone but not forgotten Benjie, you are heading for a better place. May your soul rest in perfect and eternal peace my friend. I am pleased that your send-off, is at The Good Shepherd, where it all started, all those year's ago.

Uncle Bengie,

Your smile, upbeat nature and sincere love for your family will always be remembered. You lived your life "your way" and my only regret is that we did not get to spend more time with you.

"Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." 2 Corinthians 3:17

Love, your Canadian family, Adrian, Andrea, Alicia, Charles, Janelle, Gabrielle and the late Peggie Forbes.

Condolences to the Forbes family on the passing of Benjie. He will be missed. The last time I saw Benjie was in 2012 when Leslie took me to see him at his place in Christ Church. He made us laugh. It was so nice seeing him after so many years. May his soul Rest In Peace. Remember not to mourn as those without hope, for our hope lies in Christ Jesus.
