In Memoriam

Ben Kramer

This is my friend Ben Kramer. I met him online through Poker Academy software, and then later in person in Las Vegas when he organized a PA meet-up. I took this photograph when he was in the Washington area visiting his parents.

Ben was one of the kindest people I've ever met. He was warm and funny, and he truly enjoyed making others feel welcome and appreciated. He died of heart failure on August 16, 2009. The world is a poorer place for his absence.

I played with him at PA. Always a good guy. I'm sorry to have never met him in person though, he sounds like he was a great friend to have.
