Very sad indeed. My prayers go out to both his family and the young girl. She's probably going to have a hard time accepting it was an accident rather than her being at fault. I hope she will be ok in time.

My condolences. I agree and good thought to pray for the driver as well. Amellrotts, thanks for the additional info.

Very sad. Thanks for sending thew card. Feel bad for her though as well. Getting over the "should have been me" or "what have I done" is really hard. Condolences to all involved.

Well if anyone has contact with her give her some consolation that others understand a bit. It is a sad loss, but no reason to lose two to the tragedy.

Typically, that's life insurance when you are younger and/or with more debt (e.g. a mortgage, student loans, future college tuition for kids, etc) and retirement savings when you are older and have fewer obligations.


Sometimes tragedies like this are a good reminder to look at our own situations and see if there is anything we need to do to better get our own affairs in order.

start with Gerber life insurance, because you always need more money to pay the bills when you newborn kicks the bucket.

sorry not in good taste, but i think that Gerber baby life insurance is a scam and I feel bad for the people who pay into it thinking they are doing something good.

In some cases it can be a good idea. On the edge heath if a new born on top of the mountain of bills for the birth..
Other then that, I totally agree. They feed off of new parents fears. Yay corporations! Sorry it's off topic.

So then we won't be doing anything for the family/friends? Hell maybe the local people can do a meet/cruise through the Tail the Dragon.

They've place a black ribbon on the RAGS sign on the gap. We've done trash pick-up on the last 2 miles for 10+ years and Roy has joined many many times.

I know it's a long ways away but I plan on doing something to honor Roy for MATG this summer.

Also Jason, a good friend of Roy's and mine, set up a fund raiser for Roy's family. Feel free to donate! https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/bfJp1...acebook.com%2F

rip indeed.
sucks to have **** like this happen, especially for what seems to be an actual "accident" and not some poor driving.

RIP man, he's driving the legendary 98 miata in the foreversky.

I'd like to think we can learn something from this; do we know if there was any amount of safety measures he could have implemented that could have prevented this? Or did the car hit the tree sideways? I can't tell from the above image. ..
