"love r1's", may you rest in peace mate.

Hi all,

For those who knew @love r1's , I have some really sad news.

He was involved in a fatal traffic accident earlier this month. I was just called by his wife with the news.

Rene is a great guy. RIP mate.

Thanks 26red for letting us know. I hate seeing these threads. If you don't mind me asking, how did you know him??? It may give us a little more insight into him.

"love r1's", may you rest in peace mate.

Prayers for his family as they go through this tough time.

Not sure if you guys have done it before but on some other boards we've raised some funds to donate to fellow members or their families in need for various reasons. This sound like a good cause to help out with some of the costs. Losing a loved one is hard enough emotionally, if we can alleviate some of the other burdens I would be more than happy to contribute. Just let me know if there's anything I can do to assist.
