    Re: CGT Crash, please tell me it wasn't ben?

    Shocked too and very saddened by the news.
    Funny how you have actually never met someone and yet, thanks to an internet forum, feel that you have build something over the years.
    RIP dear fellow Rennteamer,
    My Condoleances to his family.
    Fanch.

    RIP

    Re: CGT Crash, please tell me it wasn't ben?

    Condolences from Germany! It was always a pleasure reading his postings with a smile on my face...

    A very sad day...

    Re: CGT Crash, please tell me it wasn't ben?

    For those of you that didnt know him much or at all, heres an email that I think helps paint a better picture of him. He had such a great attitude, theres not many people like him. He helped alot with getting my videos hosted and compressed, also thanks to Pete.

    Sorry if this upsets anyone, I just dont know what to do. I will take this down if anyone wants me to.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    RIP, Ben. We won't forget you.

    My prayers go to his family and especially to his little baby daughter. I'm not good with words in such situations...

    Still can't believe it.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    I don't often post here, but I frequently read the various posts, and over time I feel that I have gotten to know Ben.

    I always looked forward to, and enjoyed reading his insightful posts. He was the kind of person who I admired and respected, and the kind of person that hoped I could be like when I grow up.

    He will be missed.
    Condolences,
    Luke.

    That's exactly how I felt, just from reading his posts here on rennteam I felt I knew him. I just can't believe he's gone...

    Here's to one of rennteam's best, a true enthusiest.. to Ben.

    Re: CGT Crash, please tell me it wasn't ben?

    may god be with you ben.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    This is very sad. Sorry.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    Condolence to all who knew them.

    God Bless.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    Lost a personal friend last week; my neighbor was taken to a nurshing home; another college friend has a serious cancer..and now Ben lj. Only knew him from posts and some emails back and forth. We bought and sold a few things.

    It's such an empty feeling for me and I cannot even imagine the sorrow the family feels.

    Godspeed Ben..

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    This news is spreading too. I went to the porsche dealership near me today, and when I was about to tell the guy I knew who worked there what had happened, he opened an e-mail he got from someone talking about it. This is such a sad thing. I didn't know him in person, but it was like having someone you've talked to, and watch respond to other posts, pass away. So sorry to anyone that knew him. God bless him and his family and friends.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    Reading Ben's posts was always a part of the pleasure I got from rennteam. He will definitely be missed. I hope that those of you who knew him personally will make sure his family knows that there is a large of group of us that share a portion of their grief.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    What horrible news, I find this hard to believe... may God bless Ben and his family.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    I am still hoping we will see Ben post saying it is all a big mistake

    Re: CGT Crash, please tell me it wasn't ben?

    I found out about this terrible news this morning around 6:30 am, that's when I check rennteam.com first hand. I saw the message and I almost fell of the chair and hit the floor with my knees.

    I never met Ben in person just on this board and several PMs but it feels as though I lost a brother .

    In April I lost a good friend who was only 42 and now Ben at 39.

    In fact I was so disturbed by this awful news that I called the office and didn't go in today. I still can't think straight.

    My deepest condolences to his wife charlotte and beautiful baby girl Parker.

    Ben,
    You're always in our hearts
    We'll miss you

    I have several videos clips of him confidently piloting his majestic car. Im going to try and make one big memorial video of all my video/pics of him. He was the keystone of my 2 car show videos. It sucks that my last video also had a memorial in it. I sure hope its the last.

    Ben was a great role model, especially for us aspiring young men. We will NEVER forget him.

    Re: CGT Crash, please tell me it wasn't ben?

    Guys..no words..

    I know Ben only for his messages on some Porsche Forums in internet,but yesterday when i realized that the crash of the CGT is his CGT...i was shocked...

    Really i never think that the lost of a "internet friend" can be so hard....specially for a friend that,like the most of you,live really far...

    My condolences to his wife,his baby and his parents..and also to the family of the other guy..

    really a sad day..

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    I read the sad news yesterday and was totally shocked.

    I feel so sorry for his wife and daughter, as well as for the guy who was on the passenger seat.

    So sad news, can't say no more...

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    R I P
    My deepest condolences to his family.

    Re: Ben Keatons (ben, lj.) Condolence Thread

    My sincere condolences on the death of Ben Keaton. he will always be remembered.

    Well said Ryan. I feel for his wife and baby daughter and have them in my thoughts. We will all miss Ben and Cory greatly. May they rest in peace.

    It's still hard to believe. Through it all, I am encouraged by the community and everyone coming together in this dark time to pay tribute to a great friend.

    Re: CGT Crash, please tell me it wasn't ben?

    Even though I have never met him personally, I was shocked to read about this tragic accident. May his soul rest in peace.

    My condolences go to his wife and family.

    Tim
