Nathalie also conveyed Ben’s compassion for what he did. “Ben spent over 10 years spreading his love and appreciation for his hobbies. It was through his love of exciting stories and well written characters that got him started on YouTube,” she explained.

She said of his Comicstorian channel, which Nathalie called “one of his greatest accomplishments,” that she knows “he wouldn’t want it to end like this.” She vowed “to keep that going” along with the team in order to “honor him by continuing to tell great stories by great people, as well as to keep the memory of our very own superhero alive,” Nathalie wrote.

“We supported each other on everything we wanted to do and I’m not about to stop now.” However, for the time being, she said she along with everyone else “need our time to mourn.” She asked that everyone respect her privacy “as well as everyone else’s” while she finds comfort in friends and family as she grieves.
