Still does not feel real to me that you are gone. I pray it never truly does. I had so many plans to take trips with you and April as we raised our kids together and grew old. You are a wonderful person, and such a fantastic, funny, and caring friend. You will be thought of every day and missed dearly.

My deepest condolences to Ben's family, friends and colleagues. How he will be missed and what an impact he made in the short time he blessed us with his presence. I was honored to be his piano teacher for so many, many years. Love and prayers to everyone.
