Ben and I met almost 12 years ago when Ben's cousin was married to a friend of mine. We instantly became friends, and remained friends all these years. Months, sometimes a year would go by without hearing from Ben...he was kind of a wanderer...but I always knew when a strange number appeared on my caller ID, that it was Ben. We never completely lost touch. When my husband passed away last year, Ben was there to pick up the pieces of my broken heart, put them back together, and show me that I could love again. Truth is, I always loved him, and he always loved me...we just never realized how deep that love was until then. Now, we see each other every day, and we love each other more than ever!
Ben and I both have amazing families who have been so supportive of us over the past year. We would like to thank our parents as well as our 5 children (Logan, Regan, Brooklynn, Ava, and Holly) for making our lives what they are today!
