Ben, you came to visit not so very long ago. And now we visit in that sacred space of so many ones lost to us. To call up a memory, for us perhaps of months on the Amite River a few miles from our LSU classes, is to bring life back through time. May the love of your family and friends grace you now as your recorder music graced us so so many years ago.
