namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
use Exception;
class UserController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function show($id)
        try {
            $user = User::find($input['id']);
        } catch (Exception $e) {
            $message = $e->getMessage();
            var_dump('Exception Message: '. $message);
