Hopefully those poor little ones can find some kind of peace. Reply Dean Waines says: January 22, 2020 at 7:15 pm If the money can't go directly to the children, I would say donate it to a domestic abuse organization of sorts. The reptile community second.

By the looks of the mugshot her ex looks like a junkie and she doesn’t look so good either. You couldn’t stand to loose her income idk just my theory bc of her ex being arrested too. And she was having an affair with another dude damn that woman is straight garbage and should never see the light of day again.

Reply Sam Dilworth says: January 22, 2020 at 8:17 pm I would donate the money to a reptile charity in his childrens name. Its terrible that they would have to go through this. First they loose their Father, then they loose their Mother for taking their Fathers life. Im not sure how old they are but I would try to help them through this. Im sure whatever you decide to do will be correct decision. Reply TANYA S says: January 22, 2020 at 8:17 pm So sry to hear about your friend BRIAN Donate the money to his children ❤️ Reply Живко Яннкулоски says: January 22, 2020 at 8:18 pm Thank you for mentioning Ben. I was a big fan of his work on anacondas. He was the only guy who made serious efforts on breeding anacondas to create new morphs. His T+ albino greens, and patternless yellows were awesome. It would be great if you could visit his collection someday if it still exists. Even better if you could get a hand on one of them. Reply Steve Simpson says: January 22, 2020 at 8:20 pm Give it to his kids, after all they are going to lose their mum as well Reply TANYA S says: January 22, 2020 at 8:20 pm Have a safe trip❤️ Reply Tina M Wright Beauty Babe says: January 22, 2020 at 8:21 pm So Sad Reply Tina M Wright Beauty Babe says: January 22, 2020 at 8:22 pm What about donating it to his Children Reply Amanda Duhhh says: January 22, 2020 at 8:23 pm That’s so sad that happened to him.

Reply xXRetroTheKillerXx xXGatchaXx says: January 22, 2020 at 8:29 pm Shnake shead Reply TheSephradragon says: January 22, 2020 at 8:30 pm You know I have thought about having a charity snake. One that breeds to raise money for some organization. Maybe the snake can be sponsored to help cover costs or for direct donations or something. Idk just ideas I have had. Still might look into it if my stuff goes well. Reply Cekybo says: January 22, 2020 at 8:31 pm USARK for sure! They protect our rights as reptile owners, and the activists and politicians are coming for them.

Reply Edgar says: January 22, 2020 at 8:59 pm According to news reports, she was having an affair, he then found out and planned to end their marriage. His wife was struggling financially as a spa owner, she then fed him a drink filled with narcotics to kill him, but he didn’t die. She then constructed another plan to kill him because she was afraid that he might take their children. Reply Gage Arp says: January 22, 2020 at 9:01 pm If possible I would personally donate it to whom ever is now raising the children. They have lost the most in this situation. Reply Tyler Bumpass says: January 22, 2020 at 9:06 pm Hi Brian i would love to donate some money if you can get in touch with me i would love to send some money over. Reply Tammy Moor says: January 22, 2020 at 9:08 pm Donate to Australia! Reply todd moore says: January 22, 2020 at 9:14 pm Ben's death was a terrible trajedy. He was a rising star that had so much left to offer the industry/hobby, and to humanity in general. I recall him having some incredible animals he was working with and haven't heard much about them since his death. The Renick Ghost retic is fantastic, and I believe I recall a t+ albino anaconda also. I know at least one breeder is working with the ghost retic, but do you know anything about the anacondas? Just curious, you're closer to the heart of the industry than I am . Reply Spill Your blood Promotions says: January 22, 2020 at 9:14 pm Give the money to his kids Reply Janice Simms says: January 22, 2020 at 9:15 pm Donate it to his children.. Reply Lynnette Scroggie says: January 22, 2020 at 9:16 pm I am sorry for the loss of life especially for the children. Brian you mentioned back stabbing. I tell you the politics of every day life can destroy or take away from anything. I was a musician and truthfully in the end it was not worth my happiness as the politics were so ugly. We have also seen this in the desert racing community also. Prayers for all & try to keep the fun things fun. Let's let all live & let live or go away.
