“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants” (Psalm 116:15)
Ben went home in the early hours of the morning, Saturday, March 28, 2020. His passing was restful and peaceful. The Nasser family is thankful for all of you who prayed for him so faithfully. As a way to celebrate his life, please feel free to submit a short story about time spent with Ben or upload a picture or video below. All stories, pictures, and videos will be shared with the family.
Benjamin Nasser Memorial Video
In respect for everyone’s safety at this time, the Nasser family will not be holding a memorial celebration. Instead, please join our family in watching the video below in celebration of Benjamin’s life tonight at 7pm EST. Feel free to share this video with loved ones on your social media channels.
In Lieu of Flowers and Gifts Donate to the “Benjamin’s Friends” Giving Fund
In lieu of flowers and gifts, the Nasser family asks that you would consider donating to the “Benjamin’s Friends” giving fund. Every penny donated will go to special needs ministries that Ben handpicked. He came up with “Benjamin’s Friends” on his own when we asked him what he wanted on his 40th birthday. Ben said he wanted to start a fund that helped people who have Down’s syndrome like him yet didn’t have all the love he has. Every penny collected at his 40th birthday went to ministries & churches that offered care and support for families who have family members with special needs. Continuous gifts received into this fund will also go to the same causes.
One of my favorite relationships to watch was between Ben and Harper. Harper grew up with Benji from the time she was born. He taught her to high five. He taught her to play peek-a-boo. They truly had a bond that was precious. One of the sweetest (and funniest) memories of the two of them was Ben explaining the colors of the rainbow to Harper, who was 2 at the time. He explained to her that “red is the color of Jesus’s blood that he shed for us”….the look on her face was priceless! Everything came back to Jesus in Ben’s mind, which is something we could all learn from. I’ll miss his hugs, his “Hi Miss Liz” smiles, and his special bond with Harper. I can’t wait to hug you again one day, Benji. I love you, thank you for loving my family.
