I only knew Ben and Bailey for a short time, he was my next door neighbor. But in that brief time I was blessed to meet such a great person! It was actually funny how we met...One night I noticed Bailey outside Ben's patio and she was shivering in the cold and rain. I looked to see if he was home, but his car wasn't there. So I took Bailey in my home and waited for Ben to get back home. Of course this was one night that he stayed somewhere else and didn't come home until the next day. Well needless to say when he got home and found out that Bailey was accidentally left outside, he was overwhelmed and so grateful that I took her in. After that day he constantly tried to repay the favor, but I would just laugh and say it was ok, I couldn't leave her out there like that, and my 3 year old daughter had a ball playing with Bailey. I am extremely saddened to hear of his loss, and even though I didn't know him that well, I will always remember that great smile and warm personality. My thoughts and prayers are with Ben's family and friends. God Bless.
