Ben, Your wisdom, humor, heart and kindness are always remembered. The kids are at ages where they are missing you all over in a different way as they come to age. We share your amazing character and strength with them so they can know they have it in them. They do, so please watch over them. Love and miss you being here for everything. You were an amazing father to Katarina Ben and Becky, and taken away in a flash. Always in our hearts.
