A few days ago we lost #benbest to the cosmos. He was one of my very favorite people on this planet. One of the kindest, most generous, gracious human beings I’ve ever met. He brought so much warmth, so much laughter and poignancy, always looking at the stars, willing to watch the fireflies, giving the best birthday presents ever, creating collective laughter so hard you couldn’t breathe. We’d go on late night trips to see the watusi hiding in the southern Appalachia ghetto.

We’d carve pumpkins and eat feasts. Every time he was around, every time he came over and ate dinner or we went to see a movie it was something special. I’ve never met anyone who created such strong and true memories in the seemingly mundane.

I’ve always hated this pic, foz loves it though. Half way in laughter, face bunched up, slamming the shit out of salsa, Ben and foz walking in circles around the counter top, cracking jokes a mile a minute. Surrounded by two men in my life that brought pure unadulterated happiness to me, it felt like home. He always made it feel like home, but the best was when he sank into the comfort too, how easy and smooth it all came out, the laughter and beauty and fears and understanding, how bright he made the world. This one is a real hard one to swallow. I don’t know how dealing with the hole he’s gonna leave will be, but it’s gonna be rough. Love you Ben ❤️❤️❤️ always gonna
