Knighted by the King of MUD himself

Cumming, Ga.
Just got off the phone with Adam and he had terrible news. Don't quite know what or how to say but FYI--

Sidney's dad was in an accident last night that tragically and unfortunately ended his life prematurely. I have a few more details but not much and frankly it's not important so out of respect to Sidney and his family they can provide the information as they choose.

I'm sure they could use your prayers and best wishes right now!!!!

Ted, Thanks for letting us know.
Very sorry to hear this news, Condolences and Prayers to the Benton Family.
Ted, thanks for letting us know. We'll definitely say a special prayer for them. If you guys decide to make a donation or anything, keep us in the loop.
Yeah, saw that. Just didn't know if they might collect and make a group donation from the GA Cruisers.
I hate to hear this news, and I definately think that the GA Cruisers should make a donation as a group
Really sorry to hear the news. My thoughts are going out to the Sid and his family at this time.
We're keeping the Benton family in my thoughts.
Services are scheduled for Saturday 12-3 at Mansfield Baptist Church near Covington.

Yes the club should do something on behalf of the Benton family. Sidney has been an integral part of this club for years and he is the one who got me hooked on this ridiculous and expensive hobby, not sure if I should slap him or hug him but he's owed our respect.
Im looking now to see how to set something up.

The club is sending a donation, in accordance with the family's wishes. If any one wishes to piggyback and add to the donation, simply send a paypal (by end of Wed Jan 21) to and note it for “Benton Memorial”. We’ll put everything together into one donation and send along with a letter acknowledging the contributors. PM me if any questions.
