This sounds like great news!
Is Kathleen Hoffman any relation to Maarten Hoffman?
I did a search to find out who to notify that Kathleen is O.K., and I found only one post from desert_rays, yesterday at 10:00 AM. That's the only other post that said Hoffman.
I'm sure you are very busy keeping this board up and managing communications with all your people, but if you give me Tom's contact info: phone, email, etc., I'll be more than happy to assist in notification to concerned parties. That's my favorite thing!
P.S. I tried to reply to your post, but it doesn't seem to be working. Maybe the problem is related to my disappearing posts. Just post your reply here, and I'll find it.
