Happy Birthday Ben Evans

                              Grandchildren are a blessing and I have been bless with twenty one. 

Ben wife Ashley and Children

I think this is a beautiful family, Ben has been blessed to have such a wonderful wife and almost perfect children.  Happy Birthday Ben, hope you have a wonderful day.  For as long as Ben has been old enough he has been as harder working young man as I have ever know.  When I kept them he would follow me around asking  if he could help me.  When I lived in Shreveport I would spend the weekend with them and  help Ben do the dishes if it was his turn, I would wash he would dry.  I have never liked to dry dishes.  Ben is the son of Ken and Debbie Evans, the third child.  Ben is smart, kind, and most of all Ben is a Christian, I thought he would be a minister or maybe a politician, he has a gift of never meeting a stranger.   Ben does preach from time to time.  I went to visit Ben and Ashley in November and he took us to see the area, the leaves up there were beautiful.  Ben knew where the elk where grazing and I saw my first one in real life.  I had seen them on TV but not walking around about 100  feet away.  Ben and Ashley live in North Arkansas, as prettier place as there is in  USA.   If you have never seen it in the fall of the year you have missed a treat.  Ben is a wonderful host and Ashley is a great hostess.  Ben is the Edward Jones Agent in Fayetteville, and he is my agent, tries to take care of Grandmother's money, does a good job.  When he was young I thought Ben looked like the Evanses, then I thought he looked like his Uncle Steve, however now that he has grown up I think he looks more like our side. He has the receding hair line like the men in my family.  But no matter who Ben looks like I think he is a handsome man and I know he is a  wonderful man.  And his Grandmother loves him with all her heart. I am very proud of Ben and glad to be his Grandmother. Ben bring your wonderful family down to visit any time .   I hope you have enjoyed meeting another member of my family Ben Evans, grandson.  Thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom, and I hope you grow one of your own.  Happy gardening to you from me, Juanita.
