We will remember him fondly through the many pictures we have of him, Mackenzie and his other friends from Elizabeth Seton School during the many activities and fun they had together. We will grieve and pray for you and Benny.

Eternal rest grant unto Benjamin, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.

Condolence from Francois & Dominic sent on February 6, 2018

We are so very sorry to hear about your loss. David called us today “Tuesday Feb 6th” after finding our number on Ben’s cell phone. It was such a shock. Words cannot express how upset and devastated we feel. It was always fun having Ben run with us on a number of occasions at the track at the rec centre. He would always come up to the track and say hi and chat for a bit and always with a smile. We will miss him.

You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

I would like to give my sincere condolences to the Grosso family and friends. I want to thank Ben that I got to know him at least a bit in the last couple of months and that I had the privilege to count him to my friends.
