Ben meant the world to me. He was my son and my best friend. We were inseparable. We laughed and cried together. There were good and bad days. However, the good days outweigh the bad ones. I’m so appreciative of the time we spent together and it will never be taken for granted.
I will miss our FaceTime conversations, phone calls, and texts. I will especially miss him sharing his music with me.
Ben had dreams and ambitions. No matter what, I would tell him the truth and remind him to keep God first. Ben showed unconditional love.
When he joined the Army in 2019, Ben told me that he wanted to make me proud. I’m so glad I was able to tell him he already made me proud.
I lost my son on March 18, 2021. He will be my forever and always.
