    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

    This is the 3rd person in 4 months for me who has died from cancer. None made it to 60

    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.

    RIP Fugu.

    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.

    RIP Fugu.

    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.

    RIP.

    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.
    –Dr. Seuss

    R.I.P. Fugu, you will be missed.
