    I don't spend as much time on the BOH board as I used to. I'm going to miss chatting with Fugu. She was so proud of her kids. I hope they know that.

    Aw man. Just saw this. I knew things were getting worse the last time I chatted with her months ago but hadn't seen updates or spent any time on the mains since I resigned. Saw the new banner tonight and heart skipped a beat.

    So terrible and cruel the way it seemingly went away and came back. But she kept it mostly a secret. Strong person to whom much is owed.

    RIP Fugu

    I didn't interact with her but you can tell she made an impact on here with the way people speak of her.

    The new title pic is great and commemorates a legend of these forums. Fugu forever.

    Hey all, just a reminder but I'm aiming to deposit the collected money to Phil's BCRF site for Barbara on Saturday. If you still want to add your money to the HF pool, please do so before then! Thank you all who've contributed - I can't wait to add this and show how much HF loved our Borg Queen/Fish Mom/Pufferfish and how much we want to pay it forward.

    This thread was a pretty heart warming read. I didn't have much interaction with Fugu but what a reception from HF. Hope she's smiling down somewhere!

    Much praise to all of those involved who made the banner.

    I didn't know her but just by reading the comments I can see what a truly special person this was.

    Fantastic alteration to the banner. Very fitting.

    Also gives new consideration to what the "F" in "HFBoards" stands for. ;)

    She had a great sense of warmth about her, which is very difficult to convey as a text on a screen. Despite never meeting her in person, she is one I will never forget.

    Not having her around here is already a big loss, and with the above in mind, I can't even begin to imagine what a loss it is to those who had the privilege of being around her.

    I didn't have much interaction with Fugu but it was impossible to go anywhere on these boards and not recognize her impact, whether it was a post from her or just her presence alone. She will be dearly missed. I am incredibly grateful to her for building this community.

    My thoughts are with her family. RIP.

    Great job on the banner as well, guys.
