I would like to inform you that almut passed away recently due to a tragic accident. She was caught by a sudden thunderstorm while climbing an exposed ridge in the Swiss Alps. According to an eyewitness, she was struck by lightning, then tumbled and slid down a steep scree field. She died on the way to the hospital on August 24.

My apologies if this is inappropriate or posted in the wrong section, but as she spent a lot of time in this forum, I thought you might want to know.

Her SO and best friend,

I'll also put a notice on her profile, for anyone who knew her but doesn't happen to see this post. (I have her credentials, as she left her master passphrase in a sealed envelope for cases like these. This should also be sufficient proof I am her SO and this is no bad joke.)
