it was a good route, taking in some decent roads, and my little deviation to the end section was welcomed by those who followed.......

Yep i had heaps of fun i only cruised to the first stop then i left, i don't think i would have made it much further with the petrol that i had left. I got lost staight away, being last out the carpark with out a map wasn't my best idea.

 

Just also want to say thanks to bens parents coming down and having a chat, hope that it all gets easier from here for you.

 

R.I.P Ben

Hello all,

 

You might recognise me as a new user, but you also might recognise PART of my user too.

 

For all those who didn't go to the cruise, My name is Elicia Simpson and i am Ben's (Drift_Pig13) older sister.

 

i would just like to thank you all for your support of my family and myself in this difficult time. my boyfriend Daniel and myself were able to go on the cruise with my parent's and Shaz's blessing. (We were in the WHITE commodore!) and it was a lovely day; although Dan and myself wound up with some lovely sun and wind burns :blush: at least we have some colour now! (but we will be packing sun screen next time!! :angry: )

 

Thanks to all who turned up to the funeral, put their cars on display or just turned up to the cruise. Special recognition goes to Mike and the other Dough-nutters down at the Santos Stadium at the end of the cruise. You guys know who you are and thanks, Ben would have been laughing and cheering his head off! :D

 

At some point in the future i would love to go on another cruise, and maybe go shotgun with one of you guys *Giggles* any volunteers? Shaz?? :rolleyes::D

 

i hope for you all to keep in touch, as you were almost like an extended family to Ben. he loved the cruises and the chats...and cars in general.

 

thanks once again for the support and hope to hear from you all soon.

 

cheers and God Bless...

 

Elicia (Ele_Drift_Pig13)

The deviation was awesome. Finally good to thrash with some decent drivers.

That jump was wild too. If not a little unexpected. I wish you had your camera out for it.

 

Can't wait for the next Michael-planned-cruise.

 

 

RIP Ben. Hope you enjoyed watching the cruise.

Just a message to his parents and friends if they read this

But i would like to pass on my condolences to the family and friends and although i did not know ben, he sounds like a very very nice guy.

A small prayer i hope can bring some small comfort to you all

" god has him in his keeping, you have him in your hearts, you love him so, god will link the broken chain, closer when you all meet again"

I never had the pleasure of meeting Ben, but i'm almost envious of the people that did know him, he sounds like he was an all-round awesome guy. My condolences to his family, friends and anyone else effected by the tragedy.

 

Rest In Peace Mate.
