We lost our friend AceofHearts in September, 2017. Her daughter, BookCrosser HoserLauren, wrote the following tribute to her mom.
"My mom Dana (AceofHearts) passed away September 17, 2013 after a valiant battle with breast cancer. One of her favourite past times of reading continued to bring her comfort up until almost her last day. Known to other Bookcrossers simply as “Ace”, mom joined Bookcrossing in 2004, shortly after I had joined the site and realized what fun it was. Mom quickly surpassed me in books registered and friends online. She participated in may book rings, books rays, and book boxes. Outside of Bookcrossing, mom also decided to start a book club with her local friends which she really enjoyed.
