This is an excerpt from an email I received this morning from a friend of MsToastmaster.
To our new geocommunity friends,
Please keep MsToastmaster in your thoughts and prayers right now. She could use a kind word... Her husband died very unexpectedly last night.
MsToastmaster could use some well wishes, prayers and thoughts.

For those of you who have not yet met MsToastmaster, She also caches as one of the "Hookers". She lives in the Lisbon falls area, and has only been caching since last fall but has gotten very comfortable at it.
Dot, We offer our condolences and hope that if you need anything that you will let us know.

How sad to hear. Echo from CM if there is anything which we might do to help......but probably the last place she will go right now is to these forums.
Please - TAT or whomever may be close or near the area - keep us posted on visiting, arrangements, etc.
I will keep the family in my thoughts and prayers.
