Unfortunately, Ripn and BJ had not made it to the area we enjoy riding so well. We met them up at Grand Lake - that was the first time we had ridden there. We still had a great time, but was very anxious to take them to the deep powder areas we really enjoy riding.
RMKer and I decided, whatever Mountain we ride in Colorado will be in her honor. They had plans to come out and let us show them are favorite spots to climb and boondock in - just out right cut up and have fun in. I was truly looking forward to that.

Its amazing, how close we've all gotten through basic chatting and small group rides together.

Ripn may have only met a few members on this site, but was one of the most respected, and well known members. Its werid, how as a forum and small chat, that we've become more of a family and how much it affects us even when we barley knew each other, but knew each other so well.

As I read this thread, I store at that first post, my mother asked me what I was doing or if something was wrong, because normally I am clicking away, I responded saying one of the members was gone, she passed away in a car accident. And she just kinda moved on, but for US, its so much more.

It may not mean much, and I will be praying for her personally tonight, but heres a few words for ya ripn.

Dear Lord, Laura, as we know her, is and always will be a great, highly succesful, knowledgeable fun to be around person who was loved by all of us. Please take her in your arms, and take damn good care of her, cause she would have done the same for any of us.

Amen

And Ripn, I accept your apology for making fun of me with bryan when I didnt know about it.

Ill be pouring one for you to ripn! but I cant post in your guestbook on SF, cause im baned, and it wont be beer, maybe Sunkist or something.

its funny how we all are thinking and saying the same thing. but when it comes out of your fingers it doesnt seem like enough can be said.

it will be some work the rest of us will have to pick up on but we will keep up the picking on you!!

in your own head you can remember times chatting and laugh. thats what makes good people different from scum.

Of course. I wouldn't do it as an individual thing and would sign it as ~The Crew From Slednutz~.

I'll even pay for everything and everyone can give me whatever they can afford...... it is still from all of us.

LOL. I got my Stud refund too. He came by, brought a few beers, we BS'ed about sleds and stuff. It was great.

No one seems to have any info on the funeral, its location, or anything. Once we hear something and if I do send flowers, a card, or anything, it will be a conglomerative thing since I (or whoever actually does it) will sign it with something to let the family know it came from us.

If you still want to send me a check PM me for my address.

This is so SAD for the snowmobile community. Rippen Chick touched everyone of us us.

I always laughed at her Humor, as others have said, “she could dish it out and have fun with joking around with you”

She will be missed “BIG TIME”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess it don’t matter how or why someone so “Special“ to us was taken!!! IT Just is.

I’m sure she will be watching over us, and she will be asking for a sled just like hers at the “Pearly Gates”.

I think we all could give a few bucks here or at “Haydays” for the family.

God Bless ya, Thanks for all the good memorys, You will be missed.

My prayers go out to the family.......

RIDE ON LAURA…………….

I will sorely miss my sister.

Although we never met, I have always felt that she was closer to understanding me than even my own family. ( I guess us pervs kinds thing alike)

So, a Toast!

Here's to our fun lovin sister Laura (aka Ripn Chick) We all will miss you very much and your passing leaves a hole that will be very near impossible to fill.
As you travel in that distant land, that final frontier, remember us to the Grand Architect and use you influence to get us better snow.

I raise my glass as a final salute and say, "you may be gone from us, but you will live within us always and you can never truly be gone as long as we remember."

Tonight I will be having a bottle of single malt as a remembrance and wake for her.

Let us celebrate her as well as mourn her and keep her loved ones, those that she left behind, in our hearts and prayers.

Here's what Lauras dad has emailed me back.
Hi Chris,

There is a Laura J. Gribneau memorial scholarship fund set up by her company, at Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties, www.foundationhoc.org

but Laura and BJ's ( Gribneau ) address is

9570 North Pond Rd.
Boonville, NY 13309

it'd be nice for some things to go there ....


thanks,
-gary

We can get something together from all of us and send it out to BJ and family.

I have not been here in a while and was hoping this was some sick f'n joke......I dont know how to express my sadness in reading the news. I guess we will have to have a ride to commerate ripn, and you guys can count on me for chipping in on a memorial or flowers for ripn. I know I will miss her quick wit and wacky sense of humor. I am glad I had the opportunity to share these pages with her. OMG I dont know what to say....

I will probably just have carin help me make a card and send that.
If it was my daughter, sister, wife, I would save them cardds that came from across the country with kind words and thanks on them as if they were a million dollar bill.

sometimes a simple thanks for the memorys and good times can be as meaningfull and heart felt as the most expensive object you can think of. you can never buy anything at any price that will come close to the value of a kind word or good memory's.

if its from your heart, it could be a piece of a broken belt that blew on a ride you did with her or anything like that. you know what I am getting at.
