Mike and I are so happy and heartbroken to announce the birth of our son, Benjamin James Palmer, at 12:01 a.m. on December 31, 2014. As quickly as we met him, we had to say goodbye. Even though we never got to hear that first cry or see him open his eyes, he knows we will always love him more than we or he could ever imagine. This has been the most difficult and trying experience of our life, and we will always remember and love our first child, our little boy. Ben will be forever in our hearts; mom and dad, Michael and Atanza Palmer; grandparents, Jennifer Monsos (Steve Hornberg), Daniel Valentine (Lonna Simanovski), Jeff Palmer (Leann), Angela Pautz (Tom); great-grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
A service to honor Ben was held Sunday, January 4, 2015, at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Maple Grove, Interment in St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Maple Grove. Memorials may be directed to the family.
