I received this post from Bee-L. I didn't see any mention of it on Beesource so I took the liberty to link to the Bee-L post and to share the contents here.
I extend my deepest sympathies to Dee and the entire Lusby family.

It is with deep sadness that I now write this mail as I am having problems thinking as I type.
My husband Edward W. Lusby to my great sadness died this Wed 25 Oct 06 in the afternoon and I have had much to go though, and will have
much more as I now get with the Rev Rick Lewis, in putting together a memorial service for him
on, I believe 4 November, at around 2PM in afternoon, up here in the hills of Arivaca (small town) about 12 miles from where we now live
in the little uncorporated town of Moyza.
As word is leaking out and calls are coming in and I am trying to keep my head straight it is hard, but I know that my Ed would want me to go on with the bees, and I am going to try to do so with the bees, as I think he would have wanted to bring things thru to closure for what we have been doing for close to 23 years now., were shoe on other foot.
I have already been told they don't delive flowers from town, unless in group deliveries, as so far up in hills away from nearest cities of Tucson and
Green Valley, but I will get back with address for memorial for those that might want it living nearby. For those wanting address for cards I am simply giving our mailing address:
HC 65 Box 7450
Amado, Arizona 85645
I am sorry to write this but I feel you all need to know what is going on. Many already know Ed had a major stroke back in June 2003 that he was recovering from...
I don't know what else to say for now, I am just taking it one day at a time. Only thing that really gets me is now that we got our bees
back and 4-5 deep after all these years and then this happens...Just don't know what to say.
Thank you for patience with me.
