Without a doubt in my mind, Uncle Ben is one of the Smartest Men this Planet would know. He showed me that with Intelligence comes strength. He's the Pinnacle of "You can do anything you set your mind to." Everyone could be in the house right now but it will still be empty without Uncle Benjamin.

I have many fond memories of my brother-in-law Ben. I first met Ben at my wedding . We had a great time together. After our guests left ; we stayed up almost all night talking , laughing and eating. I really loved conversing with Ben. He had a lot of knowledge to share. I will deeply miss him. I know that my brother-in-law isn't suffering anymore and that I will see him again. That's what comforts me ; that I will see Ben and all my love ones again.
