I signed on and found that Sharifah was also on the board. I went to her blog, wondering what she has been up to, and discovered that one of our members, Bob Pemberton (pembo), passed away on October 28.
Bob and Sharifah corresponded frequently. Here's the link to Sharifah's blog to read her poignant thoughts:

I found an obituary:
1SGT Robert Pemberton, US Army, Retired
His picture says so much! Breaks my heart.
Lastly, here are his posts to the board:
Rest in peace, Bob. You were a kind, thoughtful, caring guy.
