    Mama Ginger and Ben entered our lives as our daughter became friends with Ben in high school. They later became college apartment mate at ECU, when Mark entered Ben and Mama Ginger’s lives! We tailgated together! We saw the joy and laughter he brought into their lives and were so thrilled when they married on Mother’s Day! What a tragedy we are witnessing to such a loving family! We love you all!
