One of the greatest things about being in The 3 Steve's ARC was going to ST Croix to visit our dear friends, Brian (KP2HC) and Ann (The Queen of DX) KP2YL and to use their station and actually be DX. Not only were we busy working stations, but I got over my fear of flying..something Ann never let me forgetMany a time, while working HUGE pile-ups on 80M, I could throw my call out and she would spend a few minutes with me on the air, then right back to the pile-ups.Ann and Brian are responsible for many new band countries for St Croix for so manyIt is with that in mind that I pass along the sad news that Ann, passed away quietly, in the company of her friend and husband, on the island that they both loved, this morningBrian has asked that you keep Ann and him in your thoughts and to give him some time before you email or call.I speak for the all 3 Steve's when I say that a small part of us passed this day as wellAs it is said, may her memory be a blessing

I very rarely post "news" items, but I received the following email from Steve, KF2TI via the DX-News reflector and wanted to repost it here. I'd met Ann and Brian several times at NJDXA meetings and of course had worked Ann many, many times. She will be missed.
