Early this morning the canucks Biggest Fan entered Heaven. My mother and I have been Season ticket holders since 1976.My mother was the biggest Canucks fan ever. She and my father originally got season tickets with the Vancouver blazer's of the WHA in 1975 and when the Blazer's left town in 1976 we got season tickets with the canucks.Their original seats were just below the organist at the pacific Coliseum. I sat in section X Row WC (Wheel Chair) In case I haven't mentioned it before I am a paraplegic. Anyway, In those early days we were all quite healthy and over the next four years we missed attending less canuck games than Jim Robson. In 1980 my father passed away and then we were two. For the next several years I sat in my same seat and my mother moved down to the lower red near center ice behind the players benchs and for several years sat beside Ryan Walters mother. when the team moved to GM Place(now Roger's Arena I moved in section 311 A and she move onto the 100 level. Then a few years ago when she could no longer use the stairs she moved up to section 311 A next to me.
:canucks:Over the past several year my mother had ever increasing health problems but nothing not pneumonia high fever bad weather or anything else could keep her from coming out and watching her canucks. It is so sad to me that she passed just when there is so much hope that this year will be the canucks year. If anyone In the canucks organization happens to read this I would like you to print it off and post it in the Canucks Dressing room.
Bye Mum ,the Canucks biggest fan and Go Canucks Go!
