Big Ben was one of the kindest men I ever met.He and I had classic debates on everything from the best way to cook bacon to how to invest and prepare for the future.He always shared with me how much he loved his children and how much he enjoyed taking his grandchildren for a spin in the Red Vette.Big Ben was my friend I always had a smile on my face when I saw him and I knew he felt the same way when he saw me because he was smiling too.He will be missed by me and so many others that worked with him.Working in an environment like the Blast Furnaces is not easy but when I worked with Big Ben he made the worst of days feel like it's gonna only get better.Ben used to tell me "Smile work at it and go home and look at the reason why you are here they are worth it."I will miss you Big Ben you were truly like a father to me in so many ways.
