I'm so sorry for your loss - I just found out. I met Ben & his brother Tommy when I worked at Sheri's Diner. I would look forward to seeing the both of them on a weekly basis. We became close & kept in touch thru cards since I moved away from Brandon years ago. My heart is broken. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and especially Tommy.
