Ode to my Friend - My Ben

Benjamin Barker - Obituary


This is my Friend - Ben.

Ben passed away in January.

Ben took his own life.


I was not as close to Ben as I would have liked to be.

Every time I saw him though, it was as if time had not passed.

Ben was warm, and welcoming, and a good person.


Ben introduced me to several online games (Which I promptly got addicted to).

Ben had a beautiful son with my sister.

Ben made my late work nights at Famous Dave's endurable and fun.


I am so sad that he is gone.

Even though we did not talk much, I am sad that he found himself in a place where he felt that he had to take his own life.

We will miss you terribly, Ben. Until we meet again.
