holy crap i suddenly feel so much worst!

i met him once and then i talked to him on msn a couple of times, he was a really nice guy sincerely, he asked me if i wanted to go fro a cruise and stuff one but i was busy.
he met me at a cruise i organised.

im very unhappy now but im glad i know.
sam could u pm me to tell me what happened if its not too much trouble?

Hi Guys
I am Ben Simpson's dad (Mark)....thank you all for your kind thoughts at this time...Ben's funeral arrangements will be in tomorrow's paper (Thurs) & his funeral will be on Saturday morning at 10.30am at Harrisons Funeral Home Golden Grove Rd Ridgehaven ....you are all most welcome to attend & say goodbye to Ben.

There is some further bad news though....unknown to us & you all Ben was apparently very troubled and he actually took his own life....and yes it did involve a motor vehicle. We are all very distressed by this but please remember him as you knew him.

Again, your wishes are greatly appreciated...we will keep our eyes on this site.


Mark & Julie Simpson

PS Maybe you guys could cruise in his honor ?

I propose that we have a cruise for a cause in honor of Ben, every cruiser should donate a gold coin or more if they are feeling generous and we should give the money for a charity such as beyond blue (they deal with depression)

does anyone else think this might be a good idea?

well seeing as I never met ben I dont really think it would be my place to organise an event such as this, unless his family would like me to, i will gladly lend assistance if required tho.

RIP Ben...

had chats via pm several times... he had a good attitude to cars!

sam, shaz and his family - if you need anything at all... I and im sure anyone at NS would be happy to help

a cruise would be a good idea also - gold coin donation and we could give the money to his family to aid in recent events...

Dont know about anyonelse - but ill be giving $20 at this cruise... just to bump it up a bit - would be more if i didnt have to meet shipping fees for my car at the end of the month
