Colleagues. I have some bad news. As some of you will know, young Ben has been ill for some time. I have to tell that you all that yesterday evening (6th) I received an e-mail informing me that Ben passed away while undergoing surgery last Sunday. Ben would have been 16 on the 15th of next month. I am sure you will join me in sending our deepest condolences to Ben's family and friends. Thank you. GA

Grey Area, may I ask how he passed away? A friend of mine passed away too last week this day. She was born on the same day as me. :(

RIP Ben I'm really shocked to hear this very sad news. :( Ben will be missed at many aviation forums, as well as here on Key Pub. Forum. Although I did not know him all that well, and had never met him in person it is still very sad. He seemed a really nice guy. He had so much ahead of him, such a bright and promising future and yet he only got to live a small part of it. RIP Ben. Of course my sincere condolences go to his family and friends, who must be going through a difficult time. Regards, Joe

Such sad news. My deepest, most heartfelt sympathies to Ben's family. It is such a tragedy when any life is cut short, let alone one so young and full of dreams and potential. I am truely devastated by Ben's passing, having fondly read about his plans during his stay here on the forums. One thing is for sure, a sad event such as this realy does put things into perspective. So I'm sweeping the old me aside and turning over a new leaf. Tail winds to ya Ben. ...Oh, and Steve, give him a good strong hug and show him around the new world.
