Ben was a wonderful kind friend and neighbor. He told me once he liked blackberries so we brought him blackberries. He said "those blackberries were the most sour blackberries I ever did eat." We brought him apple cider and he said "that cider is the sweetest apple cider I ever did drink, I am just glad they are not made out of those blackberries." He told me that he shared the same birthday as my Father, Month, day and year. He shared with me his love for his wonderful family and his love of God and Christ. He invited us to his church. I asked him what bible he follows. He told me "we follow the King James..none of these odd Bibles that don't make any sense." He came over to plow our garden many times and refused any payment. You always felt the rich experience of knowing and visiting with this wonderful blessed Godly man. My family and this community will miss him greatly.:) William "Bill" Campbell
