All our prayers and condolences go to Ben's wife, Margaret Ann, my cousin. I first met Ben about 60 years ago and he was kind and friendly a soul as you would ever want to meet. I last saw Ben at my Aunt Louise's funeral and he had not changed a bit. He was as good to his community as he was to his family. To my cousin, Margaret Ann, I felt much sorrow and sadness when my brother Paul told me about Ben's passing this morning (7/4). All our thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours in this your moment of deep sorrow. I regret not being at your side for Ben's funeral.

Our deepest sympathy. Mr. James was a very kind man, I enjoyed visiting with him about sports. He often ended his messsage on my voicemail with "Go Rangers". He had a great sense of humor. He will be missed.

We will miss visiting with Ben each year when we come to the Homecoming of the LA Methodist Children's Home. I (Jack) remember as a small child receiving a silver dollar at Christmas which the James family gave to all of us at the Home. Our love to Margaret Ann and all the family.

What I remember most about Ben, my cousin, is how much he valued family. He was always interested in our lives and stayed in touch. He was a wonderful person. God bless you, Margaret Ann. You are in our prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Ben. He was a wonderful person that was always so positive and supportive of me and so many others. I cherish the memories of lunches with him and our talks of basketball. My prayers are with the entire family. Ruston has lost one of it's finest and most respected men, a true Hall of Famer in my book. I am in Dallas keeping the grandchildren and will miss the funeral but will be thinking of you during that time. Jack Thigpen
