Is there something that can be done to help the family through this hard time. I would be happy to join members of this group with any efforts that you are doing. May their souls rest in peace in heaven. Ezra

Whenever I think of Dalah I always remember in Magaluf when he was literally drinking for England just to make us all laugh. He was so funny and great to be around. Although he wasnt one of my closest friends I can safely say that he was one of the people i appreciated the most and I will miss him dearly. I will miss you Ben- Rest In Peace xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Dalah, I am thinking of you right now with that massive smile of yours. I feel honoured to have met you at university and that you became a good friend. Studying Economics would not have been the same without you. You strove to achieve the best and never gave up. That will always be an inspiration to me. The amazing thing was that you were always there to help me even five minutes before the exam when you rang me up to give me advice. I can’t thank you enough for the help that you gave me when I was applying for jobs and that will always mean so much to me. Dalah, you’re a first class guy in academics and personality. Words are not strong enough to express your kindness, selflessness and passion for life. You were always up for a laugh. You have been a great support to me and I could always rely on you to cheer me up when things got tough. You were a real star on the dance floor! Dalah, I will never forget all that you have done for me. I really believe that although you and your mum are not with us physically, in some way or other you will both always be around and looking down on those who you love. Lots of love to you and your mum.

Ben was such a lovely person i lived in the same block as him in first year, he would always stop to say hi, whether in the library, out clubbing or in tesco. I was shocked and upset when i heard the news and still can't believe it. i wish his family a long life

i didnt know ben very well. he was in my economics lectures for 2 yrs but i would speak to him every now and then. such a friendly guy, always had a smile on his face. whats more, he always seemed willing to help whenever u didnt get something and was so nice about it. not many ppl around like that who r happy to help ppl they are not great friends with...but he had absolutely no hang ups and for that i admired him greatly...i wish i got to know him better, seemed like a really really nice guy. i was horrified when i read in the paper on the way to work what had happened...particularly on the day that it was...such a tragedy...but he and his mother are in a better place now im sure...RIP ben, will always appreciate ur help and ur friendliness....my heart and regards go out to his father and 2 brothers x

ben, the first day i passed my driving test i will never forget because i picked my sister up from your house after a night out, the first journey i EVER made alone in a car, something which will always stay in my heart. the numerous times i saw you out in birmingham, always happy and cheerful, the chats we had, so grateful for the times we shared. my thoughts are with your family, may you rest in peace, you will be sorely sorely missed, by so many. lots of love jamie xxx

Having gone to both junior and secondary school with Ben, I can say that the world will be less of a place without him and his Mum. Ben was a wonderful person, and I just can't understand why this happened. I feel physically sick thinking about it and I am so sorry for his families loss....may they rest is peace and one day may your family be re-united. love forever... I will never forget x

Having gone to University with him, my memory of Ben dalah was of a kind, good hearted,intelligent and funny guy .. There was never a dull moment with him . Dalah's smile and general hilarity will be tragically missed. Dalah was a wonderful friend to everybody that knew him and had the honour of meeting him. My heart goes out to his family Elliot Caplan X

I know that you dosen't have so much time to read it, but when you have time so read. I dosen't have a word to explain what I feeling, it's to much hard to, you dosen't know how much I want that all what's happened was a big, big, BIG, mistake. I realiy want to see you three of you in sandy wedding but I know that it's be for you to much hard... And the last thing that I ask from don't forget them. Remember to be proud in Ben because it's true he was a brilliant young guy. Remember Nadia your amazing wife she was a great aunt and I miss her, a lot. Remember the last picture, that most beautiful picture that I saw in my short life. They need that we all be strong, for them. They are now in a beautiful place up in the Garden of life. Nadia and Ben up there whit my grandmother and grandfather and they happy their. If I just can to come back to day before and save them I was doing at. but I can't because that know exist, I believe in that things but no body else believe to. I just want that you be strong, for Jush, for Andrew, for you, for them, and for everybody else. I hope see you sone, shir.

I have never met you or your family but feel compelled to write to you. When I heard about what had happened I could not stop thinking about such a senseless tradegy. My son also graduated the same day at Birmingham and so I can relate to the pride and joy you experienced. I have heard not only that Ben was such a dedicated and hard worker but a wonderful boy who was loved by all that knew him. I have also heard that your wife was a very special lady who looked after and cared for her family with love and kindness. There are no words at a time like this and certainly no sense can be made of it, but as I understand you have two other sons and they will be your lifeline. All anyone can do at this time is pray for you and your sons, and hope you find strength from those around you who will love and care for you. My thoughts and prayers from all my family are with you. Wishing you and your sons long life. With kind regards Meryl Rosenberg

Having not known Ben that well, only from tour and through mutual friends, what we did know of him was a hppy-go-lucky kind of guy. Always the one to start the ruach on our very unenthusiastic tour group, he always got us up and chanting, even if we did lose every competition we were in. Even though not knowing him that well, it is clear to say he really was an intelligent, kind and funny boy whos zest for life will keep those mourning afloat and the loss of him will leave a huge hole in many peoples hearts. We just want to pay our respects to the Dalah family and wish each and every one of them a long and healthy life. Lots of Love The Essex Girls Katie, Sara, Charlotte and Natasha

Dear Farid -Andrew- Josh and all the family There are no words to express this tragedy. We only pray that God give strength to everyone and to help and guide all. We are going to miss the ever smiling Nadia and the regular phone calls. Also your gorgeous and polite son Ben which we did not know so well. Our heartfelt condolences to the Dalah family and thePeress family. Dear Farid - These are difficult times for you and Andrew and Josh. We had a similar experience but not quite the same. You need to rise to the occasion and do you utmost to move forward and to take care of yourself especially for your Andrew and Josh. Difficult it is. But you must do it. Besides Nadia and Ben will want to see the family to go on with their lives. Although they are not with us. There will be many second guessing about this tragedy and the what if !!This will not serve any purpose. You should stay away from these thoughts. Of course ttime will heal all wounds. You need all the strength and support of family and friends. Forgive us if we sound like preaching. We love all your family and wish and pray that you get back on track and to start once again to appreciate life and to enjoy your children and the family.

Dear Ben, Words cannot describe my heartfelt sympathy and condolences to you and your family; it is an absolute tragedy that such a thing could happen to someone like you. The world is unjust and life is very unfair; your passing has at times truly made me question my belief in God. You were a champion of life; kind and considerate, always smiling, with great dignity and honour, you embodied everything good in mankind. You worked hard and I’m not at all surprised you did so well; a 1st class degree for a 1st class guy. Although your time here came to such an abrupt end, you touched so many peoples’ lives and you will live on in all of our hearts; your soul is immortal and lives on; I will never forget you. It was an absolute privilege knowing you; your family and friends will remember you with tremendous pride. Take care my friend, and I’ll see you in heaven whenever my time here comes to pass. With all our love, Parminder & Family.

I first met ben in uni last year whe recruiting for visitors to the local old age home. What i found in him was a man who was always willing to give of himself, whether in time, effort, support or help. Ben was always there. This laid the foundations for what i like to rmember as a breif but strong friendship with Ben and fellow housemates always opening the door to me and welcoming me in the house to share in footy, partying and general fun. With this I will always remember Ben as a man for every ocassion, working hard to acheive first class grades, making time to help in the community, dedicated arsenal fan and great fun to be around. Ben, You will be sorely missed.

Nadia was a very special woman. She was loving, caring, generous and was a happy person. It is hard to believe and to except the fact that she is not going to be with us anymore. Ben was a lovely person, who had a wonderful character, which he followed by his two wonderful parents. Our condolences to Freddy, and his children for their terrible loss. Love, Edna and Jimmy Obadia.

Ben was like a second brother to me since he was 3 years old. My brother Julien was his best friend in the whole world and every time Ben came back from uni there was a huge excitement in my house, including the last few weeks after he finished his exams and was there almost all the time. We were so proud of him and he was ecstatic that he'd done so well for his parents. Nadia, Freddy and the boys mean the world to us and we are all heartbroken. I will never forget Ben for his unconditional friendship to my brother, his cheeky sense of humour and for being the sweetest boy i ever knew. Him and my brother used to just giggle for hours and even when they went to different schools and uni, he would always be there whenever he came home making my whole house laugh for ages. I remember trying in vain to turn him into a Spurs fan when he was younger which worked for about 2 weeks until Andrew found out! Mum thought of Ben as a son and both my parents absolutely adored Nadia. A party wouldn't have been the same without her and Freddy. Everyone keeps saying that not a bad word could be said of him or his mum and that couldn't be more true. The room lit up when they walked in and I struggle to find a memory where either of them didn't have a huge smile on their face. The only thing that is comforting us is the thought that they were clearly so special that they must have been wanted for better things. I will always remember them for the happy times they brought us and wish Freddy, Andrew and Josh all the strength in the world, and I hope they know we are there for them forever. Lots of love always Joelle xxxxx
