Sad to hear, RIP Fugu, the renaming of the board is awesome, well done.
Stopped in to say well done on the renaming if the forum. As someone who lurked this section a ton I'll miss all her posts.
Killion, as always you have said exactly what so many of us feel but in a manner that few could match. A fitting tribute to our friend that we will all miss greatly!
an example of her humour is the avatar I have brought back--there were a lot of complaints about it and I think there will be more--what cracked her up was the fact it was a real sign here in the UK for nearly 25 years before some little old lady filed a complaint about the sign--no one had thought about it that way
it is her sense of humour I am going to miss and the people who have posted that she was HF mom--are right--I think the site and its members somewhat help fill the void when her children moved out
Seriously.. this rename put tears in my eyes.
So sad Cancer is a terrible thing.
This is the 3rd person in 4 months for me who has died from cancer. None made it to 60
RIP to someone who had a very large impact on this community.
Heaven is getting the biggest Red Wings fan. Say Hello to Howe for me
May she rest in peace and meet all her favorite NHLers in the heavens.
Great gesture to rename this forum!
**** cancer. This place wont ever be the same without her...
Farewell Fugu. This community owes you so much, much more then anybody could ever believe.
Love the name change. I hope she is in peace and raising hell at the same time
Just saw this. So very sad. Lost my Mom at 56 to cancer as well. Far, far too young for anyone.
I'll miss how welcoming she was to everyone, how informed she was & how elegant she was with her words.
Naming the board in her honor was a nice and thoughtful touch.
Constant lurker not often poster on BOH. Its amazing the effect that someone youve never met or even hardly officially interacted with van have on you . This place will not be the same without Fugu. RIP Barbara. You will be missed.
Beautiful touch to name this forum in Fugu’s honour.
There’s just a whole flood of memories coming back as I type this. It was truly an honour to have modded on this board with her.
Very very sad news. Beautiful gesture to name the BOH in her honor.
Appropriate renaming. Thank you.
Beautiful post, Killy.
And my deepest condolences to her family. Her son and daughter, who she was so immensely proud of. Her husband, who she spoke so glowingly of as a husband and father. If they’re reading this, I hope they all know how much her love for you was apparent in reading her posts and messages.
I didn't know what to say at first, but I am heartbroken. Fugu was one of the many who made this message board what it is today. My thoughts are with her family.
Will be missed... one of the first mods that gave me an infraction when I was an immature high School kid a decade ago.
While every person is unique and therefore valuable, it is also true that every group of people has certain among them who are irreplaceable. Fugu is that to us....irreplaceable.
Thank you to her vision, her sincerity, her honesty, her loyalty to the Wings but moreso to facts, her knowledge and her tireless quest for information from many resources.
Board rename... Very appropriate. Without her we would not exist.
May we be wise and keep the same ideals, so as not so lose what's been given to us.
I don't post often on here anymore but I do read posts 4 or 5 times a week.
When i read what happened I was (and still am) genuinely sad and had moist eyes.
This, for someone I never met in life but someone I wish I had the pleasure to.
Fugu was intelligent, considerate, caring and I could feel the warmth of her compassion even through a private message.
I was fortunate to know her on here and for that will be forever grateful.
Condolences to her Family and Friends.
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
R.I.P. Fugu, you will be missed.
