I've just heard that [livejournal.com profile] phoebesmum has passed away after a long battle with cancer. Anyone who has been involved in the Sports Night fandom in the last ten years will know what a passionate fan she was and will no doubt have read at least one of the many fics she produced during the fandom's heyday.

But more importantly she was an extremely loving and generous friend and life feels a little emptier now that her valiant battle with the crab has gotten the better of her.

Vale, sweet Hilary. You are sorely missed.

Awwww... I know she didn't have much time left, but I still really wasn't expecting it. She was one of the first people I connected with here on LJ; she'll be sorely missed.

Hilary was one of my first friends on LJ and I will miss her greatly. It's a sad day indeed.

I'm very sorry to hear this. I've just read a little of her cancer blog — very sad!

It is very sad. She battled long and hard but the crab was too strong in the end.

Fuck cancer.

Thanks for passing along the news; I hadn't heard. She was such a major presence in the SN fandom for so long, it's hard to imagine it without her.

It's almost incomprehensible that she's not here anymore. She will be missed, there is no doubt.

This is very sad news. She'll definitely be missed.

It's a rotten way to start the year, I have to say.

Just heard the news also...
I miss her already, she had such a great spirit...
I was just going through her lovely SN stories on her lj.
I think I will continue to visit her lj as long as I can...she is still with us that way.
Ok, now I'm not making any sense...too devastated.
And FUCK CANCER.
YES.

It's so sad and she is very missed. It's just not the same without her.

So sorry to hear this. Even though I knew she probably didn't have much time left, I still hoped she'd be around a little while longer. I'm glad to have had her as a friend, and I'm going to miss her.

Fuck cancer.

It's bizarre not having her wry observations about life pop up on my flist anymore. LJ just isn't the same without her.

Fuck cancer indeed!

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I'll miss seeing her around.
