Ertina Loopen Passes Away

On Saturday January 18, there was a sad announcement in the Relay Volunteers group.  Ertina Loopen of the Relay Rockers team had died.

It is with deep  sadness that I must inform the group of Ertina Loopen's passing tonight of breast cancer. Tina has been a long-time Relay Rockers team member and will be missed by members of the many groups she was a part of. She is survived by her RL husband, son and brothers who were with her at the time of her passing.  Our hearts are sad, we will truly miss Ertina.

There were numerous comments about her afterwords expressing sadness for her loss. Among them was her teammate Arizona Ballinger, "Every year, she was the 1st one to jump up and say - Bid Me Bald, even before she was part of the team. And this year she was there for EVERY CRFB DJ Competition, either hosting or cheering the djs on. She never missed one.  And she tried her best to be at every other team event over the grid. If there was an event.. there was Tina and Journey.  I couldn't keep up to her."

Rest in peace Tina.
