Jenny & Ben have been the surrogate Mum & Dad for the community house since it opened! We don't know a whole lot more just yet, but obviously it's a shock to all of the family. It'd been my privilege to start to get to know Ben over the last couple of weeks while we'd been helping out at the breakfasts together. Ben brought a delightful sense of humour to everything and in a very short time Karla and I had nothing but fondness for him.
Karla and I have offered the support of The Local in any way Jenny and the family need it over the next little while. We'll keep in touch with the team at the house to see what we can do to help take the pressure off and will let you all know any needs we can help meet.
In the meantime, keep Jenny and their beautiful girls in your thoughts and prayers as we mourn with them. This is part of why we are here. We'll keep in touch. Drop us a line if you have any questions or thoughts.
