    Eben, I remember you! I remember how you loved rocks in our Co-op Geology class. I thought that you were a neat kid and I think of you when I have some cool rocks that need a boy. My prayers still follow you. God Bless you and your family,

    Ever since Eben joined our family, we have been blessed to know him. I do not remember a time when we've been together, no matter how he felt, that Eben hasn't been singing. He always makes me smile, either with his crazy, off the wall sayings or his singing. Love you Eben!
