Related: Editorials & Other Articles, Issue Forums, Alliance Forums, Region Forums# I just found out through FB that our BeHereNow has passed away.

She apparently had an abdominal cancer that was making her ill but I don't think the doctors were able to find it in time to do anything.

We had spoken on the phone about her cats sometimes, and she and her husband brought one or two of them to my office a few years ago, but we didn't keep in close touch.

She was a talented musician and a beautiful woman.

What sad, sad news.

She was one of the good ones -- one of those who gave DU it's once-upon unique flavor, "back in the day."

Rest easy, BHN...
