I believe I am correct in saying that Ben's last post said

"Pray for Me"

Well,if he is where I think he is then he
will well have known we did indeed pray for him.

A quick look in the geology forum indicates that neither Serpens nor Bill has posted there since august. Wonder if they've heard the bad news about their pardner Ben?

Ben was a great voice on this website, bringing his geological expertise and patience to bear on all the radical ideas and suggestions that this site is famous for. We will miss him.

I searched manually through old threads and learned that Ben had been posting here for at least 6 years. I was still thinking of him as a latecomer, maybe because he showed up after Endurance (?). He'd been posting here a long time. I've been posting here a long time. Time passing is sad.

If his family visits I hope they know that he was a real contributor here and was doing Science to the end.
