Benji and Sally,

Sad to learn of your loss and hope you have comfort in knowing that your father lived and enjoyed a full life. Dr. Flowe was a skilled surgeon with compassion and caring for all his patients. Dr. Flowe could have been chief surgeon at any hospital at anytime but he chose to serve his community with a full range of surgical talents. The community was blessed to have him not only in the operating room, church and many other facets of his life.

Love you! Alex, Rick & Doris, and Maritsa

Ben was one of my very favorite people. I have been visiting him once a month for at least 10 years, maybe more. He had wonderful stories and always made me smile. I am sad at the thought that I won't be able to visit him anymore, but happy at the thought of him being reunited with Dottie, Lock, and Ben. He was a wonderful, wonderful man that will be truly missed.
