I'll never my first conversation with Ben. We talked about church vision and mission and how I could be a part of God's purpose in Lafayette. I've enjoyed our short journey through life together and will never forget the many ways that God has used you to touch so many lives. R.I.P. my brother. Until we meet on the other side. To Mellisa and the family, may you find peace in God's embrace and among family and friends.
