This says to put a single favorite memory of T Ben... I dont find that to be an easy task. T Ben taught me so much and helped me learn all different methods of doing things in the construction field. He was more of a mentor to me than a co-worker. Every day coming to work with his goofy smile on could cheer you up. Words cannot express how much I will, let alone already do miss him. The world truly will be a darker place without him. If I really had to put a specific time as my favourite memory though I think it would have to be just a few months after meeting him. Being himself, goofy as always he out of no where comes up and calls me 'Big Lizard' which i dont know why but, it was funny that time and every other time he would say it. At my new job I go by Big Lizard and now it is heart breaking every time my newfound friends say it but, good to think about my little buddy.

I want to apologize to Tina and Julee for not being able to make it to the visitation. I want to go see him off but, I've not been with this company nearly long enough to ask off time and T Ben told me to make sure I always put work first so I feel this is what he'd want me to do even though I want to go home to say goodbye.
I will forever miss my little oompa oompa friend. My whole world is forever changed.

Jonathan was a very kind hearted person. My son Michael and T-Ben would ride to work everyday. We would see him with a smile all the time in the neighborhood. Our sympathy goes out to you his family. May you allow God to direct you in this time of sorrow.
