I need a hug... by Spursfan on 11 December 2006 9:36am
 
...whilst I am [temporarily] back on the site - if you can find it in your heart!

One of our closest Turkish friends has been killed in a car crash - and we are shell-shocked.

Alaattin was one of the good guys in this world. He was married with a toddler he adored (always showing off his pictures) and was always happy and smiling.

When we were looking for an apartment he drove us miles [for nothing and asked for no reward, he was a jeweller not an estate agent]; then when we got the Tapu (deeds) in September we celebrated with him in cake and pop -this will be my lasting memory of him!

When I told our son of Alaattin's death, (he hadn't been to Turkey for about 3 years) he was also devastated and he said "it's always the good guys isn't it?". His girlfriend (who has only been to Turkey once) asked if it was "the nice one".

Our hearts go out to his family and friends.

Alaattin - you'll be sadly missed.

That's very sad news, Anne, especially at this time of the year. I can only imagine what his family and friends must be going through. Hopefully 2007 will bring happier times.

My thoughts are with you Anne - it is so shocking when a young person dies especially through trauma.

Have you never lost a friend Johnny? I suspect not. Your comment is crass, insensetive, juvenile and obscene. If you find it necessary to attck Anne please confine it to other threads and please stop your abuse on threads that are serious, sad and real.
