The BCinDC family is sad to report the loss of a beloved member of our group, whose passing we have only just learned of today.
FURBALL died on February 2, 2017. Information we have found indicates that she was hit by a car while crossing a dark street. She was a busy person and she made a wild release the day before, so it was a little while before her silence became worrisome to us.
FURBALL was an enthusiastic BookCrosser and especially loved mysteries and books about the macabre. She participated in the 2011 BC Convention in DC and had a ball at the 2012 Convention in Dublin. She was talking about attending 2018 in Bordeaux.

Our local group is organizing a memorial contribution to her beloved cat foundation as the obituary suggests. If any of you want to remember her, a donation towards cats in your area would be ideal. She always had multiple rescued cats in her home and they were the inspiration for her BC screen name.
A big hug to all in light of this sad event.
