I am deeply moved, not only by the loss of Alison and her son, but by the generosity of Ty and the others who indicated their willingness to support her family. It really says a lot about this group. Every time I log on to this site or BIP I dread the prospect of receiving a post of loosing one of us (or, lets face it, one of our cars) to a tragic accident. (Just ask Will).

My heart and prayers go out to her family, and my pride in this group just increased ten fold by the gestures that were offered.

Peace.

It doesn't need to be said, but our cars are replaceable, and we as individuals are not. I mean, in all seriousness, an hour ago I almost got creamed by a Chevy truck, pulling out onto the street - were it not for a good set of brakes, I would have been hit pretty good, right where I sat. My point is, if we lose a Bonnie, as long as no one has been seriously injured, we can look upon such events with some lightness, despite the severity of the material loss. If we lose a member, however... No amount of money can replace you or me or a friend.

A dark day, indeed.

A few thoughts. First of all, for those who aren't sure who she is. Alison was the 'plastics expert' that was working on the headlight covers for the 96+ and 00+ models. She was really excited about the possibility to contribute. It took her less than a week to jump on that project after joining BI. She then joined here.

She had a great relationship with her son. He was her life and best friend. She talked constantly about the things she did with him. She wasn't a half-bad movie critic, either. Alison and I didn't talk alot, but enough for me to get to know her a litte bit. I had a YM from her at least once a day just saying something like HI or How'* your day? My only warmth out of this whole situation is that the two of them are together.

Most of us have had close calls. Jay'* 130, Rat'* recent crash, damn, all the Bonneville crashes we've had posted about non-memebers. Even I was totalled with one of my children in May. That'* how I ended up finally buying my Bonneville. We all thought for awhile we had some kind of magic invincibility.

I'm assuming by the fact that both of them were lost that Alison was driving. This would probably be an indication that she was driving her Bonneville. Alison showed me what a nice, friendly, bubbly person could be like, and I think she just showed us that we are all vulnerable. We need to learn from her lesson. Nobody can see it coming, but we can take steps to increase our survivability odds. We've all done some pretty risky things in these cars. Myself at the head of the pack. This one hit pretty hard........and I think Alison would be pleased to see us all taking a step back and looking at our own safety. Especially during the winter months. Boost levels are high, but traction is at it'* worst.

We now have our own guardian angels watching over us. Let'* not let them down. Ty, many thanks from me for your efforts to help. That'* very admirable. She was one of our own, and I think we should always keep our thoughts with her. Some kind of memorial on this site, maybe on the opening page should be the least we do. If somebody good with photoshop wants to take a crack at this, I'm sure Jeff would find a way to post it.

Let'* stick together. And not lose another.

Bill Wren

Not said enough. I'm going to add a part that I had second thoughts on, but considering the gravity of this topic, I don't think it'll be taken the wrong way. Please don't take this as sexist, take is a chivalry.

We just lost one of our precious girls. That really almost means more to me among this group of friends, as we have so few. All of them are the greatest. All the way from the queen to the chambermaid, and even the princess, who most of you haven't realized is actuallly one of my daughters. What makes this worse, though is that we lost a child in this tragic crash as well.

This goes to Amy and Kimmers more than anyone, and isn't meant to slight anyone. This comes from my soul.....and is pushed to the surface by my parental instincts.

Amy and Kimmers, please be extra vigilant. These young lives need the guidance of a Mother to have their best chance at success in life. Please be extra careful for your sake, your childrens' sake, and even OUR sakes while you're out there in the big bad world. Even when they're not with you.

I am truly sorry to hear that...

My deepest condolences to all that she has touched in one way or the other... Especially her family and love one.

I was wondering if Ty or maybe a few others would like to start a thread ( post ).. where we all put our name on and sent to their family to give a group condolence. It would be better if we can actually sign it, but I guess email is good enough.. what do you guys think...

I"ve been bummed about this the whole day when the Queen informed me this morning...
I think I will ACTUALLY take it easy and drive slow for the trip to Ottawa in memory of Alison and her son.
I wish I'd have more to say.. but no words can ever describe our most sincereous condolence.. ( other the Will.. he'* doing a good job )

I did this 2 years ago for my girlfriend who lost her son. We pitched in on a book...not to say you should do it...we were really close a few of us gals....and I recieved it in the mail and printed all the emails out on nice paper and inserted it into the memory album for her son. She loved it and still looks back to remind herself of all the people her son had touched It means alot and I would hope that it would be respected by the family.

I really hate when someone is taken from us before their natural time. Especially when it is someone so special. Please send my condolences to her family and let me know if you do set up that site. I will donate.
