    RIP to one of the most likeable posters on this board although we often were of different opinions on players and stuff but she was always respectful, calm and articulate in terms of delivering her thoughts to the person she was talking to. A quality you meet not as often as you'd want to in our world. Condolences to her family and friends.

    Very sad and awful news. She was a very insightful poster, lover of hockey and humor, and supportive member of this community - one of the people that really contributed to making this a worthwhile forum to participate in and return to. My condolences to her family and friends.

    No :(

    Very popular around these parts and I won't say that I come here often but we did have good discussions with Sam Spade. Very sad to hear this.

    That's terrible, I really liked her. She was one of those users where when she was the last post I was more curious about opening a thread than I might have been otherwise.

    RIP.

    Rest in peace Sam. Glad to have heard her thoughts on all things Capitals related and glad she was able to see Washington hoist a Stanley Cup. Devastating news

    Haven't stopped by for a while and then to read this. So sad. A terrible loss for her family but a loss for her HF Boards Caps family as well.

    I didn't know her well, only interacted with her a few times, but every time those were friendly interactions.

    Condolences to her friends and family... and just as others have said, f*** cancer!

    Good lord that is not what I expected to read when I clicked on this thread.

    Rest in peace. One of the most positive people on the board.

    I don't feel like my previous comment expressed enough about this.

    SS was a great member of this board and I'm sure a great human. We had some offline conversations and realized we were both on the same private boards a few years back. I know everyone who migrated to that board did so out of extreme passion for hockey and specifically the Capitals, so there is no question in my mind that SS had uncommon dedication to this Team we love so much, and eventually these boards & communities we all depend on and cherish. The fact that she volunteered to help moderate and maintain them while seriously ill, and continued to do so valiantly without so much as a word of complaint, is testament to her character and heart.

    May she find peace and look down upon all of us knowing how much we appreciated her.

    This is just awful to hear. SS was one of my favourite posters over the years I lurked here before creating an account Reasonable, sensible and knowledgeable. Can’t beat that.

    R.I.P SS

    So sad to hear and I will miss you friend. We had a good time on here and watched the Caps win a cup. I for sure will miss your posts and will think of you when watching the Caps in the future. RIP.

    Shocked and deeply saddened by this news. Though I never met her I am reading these posts and writing this one with tears in my eyes. What an awful, crappy year this has been.
    I am so glad she got to see our team win a Cup. It was clear from her posts just how much it meant to her and how big a fan she was.

    RIP Sam Spade, and condolences to your family, friends, loved ones. This board won't be the same without you.
