Marian and Ben,
My heart aches for you as you suffer the death of your son, Ben. I imagine the death of one’s child to be the most painful experience a parent can have, regardless of the “child’s” age. I knew Ben only remotely, from when he was still a boy. I remember him as a true chip off the old (man’s) block, with an independent spirit and a finely tuned sense of humor. You, Emily, and all your family are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve Ben’s loss.

Though Ben and I hadn’t spoken in some time, he was a good friend to me when we were younger. I have so many fun, amazing, and sometimes crazy memories of our time at Camp Glisson and UGA. He was a great guy, who will be missed. My thoughts and heart are with his family and loved ones.
