    Hi all
    Thanks to all who read this book and made comments in it along the way.

    When I first sent this book along its maiden voyage all I hoped for was that it brought some joy to the great people in this kombiclub.

    To those who became involved I guess you felt like me, part of something bigger.
    Grant thanks for the detective work in this sad ending.
    Let's hope it brought Ben some joy and laughter . Vale Ben.

    This is one of the most emotional posts I will give here & just shows the Kombi spirit so well:D:D:D:D. Got a PM from a member tonight who watches & read this thread. I've asked for his approval to post this.

    "Hi David,

    How are you going? I was reading the thread about the above book doing the rounds...such a sad story. Anyway, I was wondering if you managed to get hold of that book. If you didn't, I have a copy that I'm happy to donate to keep it rolling. Let us know your address if you want it and I'll send it up to you.

    Cheers,

    Peter

    Hi Peter,

    Book never got to me:(.

    You KC legend:D.

    Addy follows.

    With much appreciation for the Kombi spirit. Ben49 legacy done;).

    Would you mind if I posted your offer & my response in open forum?

    Thanks so much.

    Cheers


    Sunnyboy

    Hey David,

    No worries, I'll put it in the post for you tomorrow. I wouldn't have read the book without seeing the thread on here.....so happy to keep the ball rolling.

    Cheers,

    Peter"

    Forum,
    Well that be an amazing Kombi Karma:cool: & very gracious offer.
    So great to be a part of this club.:D

    The book & Ben49's spirit live on. I guess my inside cover transcribe will be different than those who went before so @wombatdventures if you could send me that inside page you have I'll put it in with the next move.

    Now whom was next...I can't see thru the tears.
    Cheers & a bl**dy lot. Sad to happy.
    This is something bigger Sunnyjim. It's the Kombi spirit.

    I'll be digging for a bit but I'm sure it will be united with the new book. I at least know the room it's in. Worst luck ( or perhaps luckily), that is the room I'm currently making changes in so it will turn up in the tidy up process.

    Nice!

    Lifting a sad end, to just a pit stop on the journey.

    It's all just a circuit on the journey of life & I find it so overwhelming that another (silent?) member would be into this & donate:D.
    Reckon Sunnyboys Kombi will never breakdown;).
    Cheers

    So we're working on something we as a club could send to Helen (Ben49's partner) to let her know Ben was part of our community & he is missed.
    Mallacoota crew, would you like to sign a card to Helen? Giving some wishes & understanding for her, that her partner was part of this club?
    Cheers

    That was just the initial suggestion. Being a team effort, David is now progressing the idea and details further, in a great way! ;)
