Edit to add the announcement email:

Leigh Ann was in an automobile/motorcycle crash in Livermore, which she did not survive. She was merging onto 580 and there was a disagreement with a vehicle; details unknown about that.

She was probably returning from geocaching.

We don't have any more details about what and when and so on yet.

Please do NOT call Caitlin and Elton. You can send email to them at nitnorth at nithaus.org, but they don't want to see or talk to anyone except as they contact us for a while.

Please do not call Colin or any of her family until Elton has a chance to reach them.))

Even after sleeping on it, I have no words to describe how I feel about Leigh Ann's passing.

Memories of her performing, talks, parties and cons keep flashing through my mind, in a incoherent jumble.

We can take some comfort in the knowledge that it was quick and that she died doing something she loved.

It seems trite, but one thing I keep coming back to, is that I haven't seen Leigh Ann in over a year,
I've been meaning to at least drop her a email asking "How's it going?" but never got around to it.
