    It is with a heavy heart that we must share the passing of a beloved moderator and poster on the caps board. Sam Spade lost her battle with cancer and passed away about a week ago.

    We know that this comes as a shock to all, but we felt that it was right to let you all know

    Man... I didn't know she was a she and I didn't know she was sick, but I'm saddened to hear she's gone. And yes, f*** Cancer!

    It was the right thing to let us know Kicker... For better or worse this place is a community.

    She had been battling since 2016 and only told hockeykicker and I recently when she felt things had turned for the worse. She mentioned in one of her last messages how happy she was that she got to experience the Cup victory with her son.

    Very sad and gone far too young. May she rest in peace.

    I always enjoyed reading Sams takes on the prospects. She was very passionate about the “futures” part of the game. She knew what she liked, that’s for sure.

    enjoyed the time, Sam, and thanks for it.

    God speed to you and your family, RIP and my thoughts are w you.

    Damn :cry: deepest condolences to Sam Spade's family and the HFCaps community. From another Vegas fan, it does warm my heart that the Caps cup win brought her happiness before she passed. f*** cancer.

    yep, this.....F cancer.

    Very sad, RIP Sam. We got our Cup. Enjoy it in eternity....


    For me, the worst part of aging is this part. Seeing friends, family members, famous people you grew up loving for one thing or another pass on, get sick, whatever.
