Supporting Ben Livengood's Family

On Friday, 8/25, at a work event on the lake, Ben had a medical emergency, likely a heart attack, and did not survive. Ben leaves behind my sister, Katie, and their two kids, 9-yr-old Ellie and 6-yr-old Daniel. Katie lost the love of her life, and the kids lost their super cool, fun-spirited dad that they admired so, so much. We're starting this GFM in an effort to help them financially as they navigate through this incredibly difficult time. Their world has been completely rocked, as well as everyone's who loves him. We believe that if Ben could ask us to do anything at this point, it would be to take care of his family. So this GoFundMe is one of the attempts to do that in his honor.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed through kind words, prayers, thoughts, and the Amazon gift list. There are no words to express the extreme gratitude and love we have towards you for doing that.

**While I was typing this, his 9yr old daughter walked up next to me and asked what I was doing. When I told her I was typing a short story about her dad, I asked her what she would write about him. Her response: "He's the best dad in the world."

With so much love,
Becca (Katie's sister)
