For those of you who remember/have ever had the honor to meet Raul Ortiz (Faze1).
He was taken away from us Friday night, in a freak accident on his way to
bike week. By another one of South Florida terrific drivers. :angry:
I left a comment on Mia Herald site that goes:

I'm at a loss for words right now and I HATE to be the bearer of bad news.
RIP Buddy.......

Wow, I can't believe it. Even though I think I only met him twice (once at a meet and once at Moroso), I felt that he was a good person. He will be missed.

RIP man.

Wow. That is very tragic.

I also only met him a few times, but he always seemed like a very nice, helpful, honest guy. It's very sad to hear that he was taken from this world in such a cruel way.

Rest in peace, Raul.

Raul was old school DSM.

His 1G "race" car was purchased brand new.

I want to say for the most part (down here)he had us and a few friends that
he made here and there. But most/all of his family and dearest friends
are up north in NJ and NY. So, he will be missed. Atleast they will get to
pay respect and give him a proper burial/goodbye.

The funeral is Saturday, the wake is Friday. He's being buried in Brooklyn...


RIP buddy

Guys, I have his sister's e-mail and I was wondering if maybe we can
put together a little something to send her.

I going to e-mail her to find out where donations can be sent and/or if
there's anything else we can do to help.

What do you guys think?

What did you have in mind as a "little something" to send? I looked through my photos breifly, but found none of Raul. Perhaps some of the others here have photos they can send to the family.

I personally would prefer to send something a bit more substantial/meaningful than a financial contribution.

Ugh, I know what you mean and I have no photos either.

Just memories.

AWD burnout at the track, remember that...
:)


One of his friends contacted me and asked if we were doing anything
in his memory. I replied with "Nothing at the moment is planned, but I'll ask.
And get back to ya"

Hey Diego, you wouldn't happen to have that picture in a higher resolution would you? I'd like to make it the background on my computer (1366x768) without distorting it too much.
