    I was stunned to hear about the people who were involved in the helicopter crash ........2 adults and 2 children died.
    We now know it was Colin and his 5yr old son and a family friend and his sons friend who was 6 yrs.
    It aparently crashed in the grounds of his home as they were returning from a trip out.
    Such a tragic loss........!

    My thoughts go out to his family and friends

    Was on CD last year, lost 35lbs. I need to lose another 21 but haven't decided which diet to use yet
    My son Chris is heartbroken, he's been a huge McCrae fan since he was old enough to play with toy cars. :tear_drop:

    I only saw the first reports first thing this am ~ at which time it had not been confirmed that he was in the helicopter. Shocked and deeply saddened to hear that Colin McRae has lost his life, but so much worse to hear his son, family friend and another young life were also tragically lost.

    My thoughts and deepest condolences go out to his family & friends.

    I am still stunned, life is so short and you never know what is round the corner. We need to grab life with both hands and live for today. Hence my decision with Mark.
