I loved how Ben would be quiet one moment and the next say something that just made you laugh. Denise gets her personality from him for sure...they dish it out the same! Lol! I got to go camping at that very special place where Ben and Sharon started their family tradition, i loved being there knowing it meant soo much to my wonderful Gerber Family. What a beautiful place it was. I am thankful for holiday dinners i got to share with the family they have become special memories for me as well. Ben you will be missed but never forgotten. Here's to you "Dad" 🍺
