Sad, sad news. A great lady who did wonders for British skating.
I don't believe in the no-win scenario. There is always a way to have your cake and eat it!!!

Indeed, sad news.

She made a great contribution - always seemed to have an appropriate and balanced remark which was constructive.

That is a shame.  I hope she had the peaceful passing she deserved, and she will be remembered for many years to come as someone with skating at her heart.

I truly wish her family well.
