I didn't know him but I watched his flash. I'm was sincerely sorry when I learned Ben had died. I know some of you probably think this is a hoax...I doubt it but I won't interfere with your conspiracies, I know some of you give less sympathy for ben and his family because of how he died. The world does not gain through a mans death, you shouldn't have less sympathy for someone just because they died of a drug overdose!
Rest in peace Ben, you may rest assured your family is in our prayers
I can definitely confirm that it is not a hoax. i was friends with ben the last couple months of his life. He lived with a bunch of friends of mine, and two of them found him. None of us knew he was using, so it was a pretty huge shock to everybody. It's a sad situation and it's nice to see that a lot of people remember him, because he was a kind, awesome, funny, creative guy.
i was just coming here today to play games, but i couldn't resist posting about this since i knew him and was happy to call him a friend.
