A friend of mine killed himself last night. He was about 22. His parents found him in their shop, he had hung himself.

He was a pretty straight laced guy. I met him in church about 10 years ago. He had gone to Florida about a year ago to become a guitar luthier. He was supposed to get married next month. Ben worked for some friends of mine cleaning chimneys. A lot of guys from my church worked there as well.

This whole thing comes as a great shock because he was such a dern good kid. I didn't believe it when I heard it. It's still real hard to fathom.

Please pray for Ben's family in this strange time.
