  1. Please respect the privacy of the person now without her husband. She is a dear friend dating back decades and her world has been tossed upside down in an instant. The shop/barn was where furniture was handmade and where their horses(s) were sheltered and fed. This is a tragic loss and under the circumstances will take some time to sort out from the official investigative side. Rest in Eternal Peace.
