Holly Bugel passes away, our thoughts are with Coach Bugel and his family

[Note by Skin Patrol, 08/21/08 6:52 PM EDT ] Promoted. I'm no good at this kind of thing and want to add only that my thoughts are with the surviving family through this difficult time.

Redskins O-line coach and team legend Joe Bugel's 36-yr old daughter died today of a rare and aggressive form of bone cancer. Jasno La Canfora has an Insider post about team reactions. Coach Bugel, who has been on a leave of absence from the team to spend time with Holly and the rest of his family, is expected to attend the funeral this week in Arizona, and then return to the team.

In other sad news that may not be quite as personal to Redskins fans, longtime NFL Players' Association head Gene Upshaw died today of pancreatic cancer -- just 4 days after being diagnosed, on Sunday.

I think I speak for all of Redskins Nation when I say that we'll say a prayer and wish eternal rest to Mr. Upshaw, and especially, Ms. Bugel, and wish comfort and happy remembrance to their families, and we'll be glad when Coach Bugel returns.
