    Oh my, I’m so sorry. I remember she posted something about her illness a while back, and I wondered about her recently.

    Did you know her personally @BabHorn?

    Sad. Thanks for letting us know. I know there's another longtime fan who also has an illness. I hope to see them at the volleyball scrimmage....but if not, then I know they may no longer be with us.

    So sorry to hear that. I recall her posts about coming from so far away to attend games. She seemed very sweet. I believe she made it for the BU game last season, that was probably her final opportunity to see the Horns live. Thanks for informing us, Babhorn.

    I never met her but she had a boundless enthusiasm for the program that anyone could easily sense from her posts. RIP.
