I'll never forget how every time I saw him, he would act so excited to see me as I would to him. "Hey, Katie," he would yell to me as he walked through the door. "Ben!" I called as I ran up to him and hugged him.
I'll never forget how he would always tell me that if I ever get scared in the middle of the night, I can just go to him and he'll protect me.
I'll never forget the last time I saw him on Thanksgiving '00. I would have never thought that would be the day.
R.I.P. Ben, I love you so much!
