  6. Ben, i'm not good at this stuff brother. We spent alot of time together in class and always looked up to you I truly felt you would be ok and make it big someday . I remember the evening you came in talking about becoming a father and the glow in your eyes it was like a switch flipped for you and along came number two and you lit up again. But none the less it hurts to read of your passing. I hope you are at peace now keep looking after those babies. I surely could type a book about you but tears started pouring. Just know you had people that looked up to you.
