Ben is blessed to have many people who love him dearly. One person who sticks out in my mind is his paternal great grandmother, Essie, also known as Ma Ma to her grandchildren and Nanny to her great grandchildren. She was one of Ben's greatest supporters. She found a way to reach Ben and make him laugh and smile. She passed away a few years ago and I often think about the special bond she had with him.
Happy Early Valentine's Day!
