Today, Ben would've been 18 years old. It's normally a happy day but it's certainly sad this time. It's our first birthday without him. Ben's book is on its way from the printers and it should arrive here sometime next week. This would have been such a great present for him to receive. After 4 years of writing his book, he would've been opening the box to see his book in print and in his hands. He worked so hard on it but was not able to see the final product. Maybe he's here, watching us and anticipating seeing book.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BEN! WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!
