PM the requestor. Tell them the situation. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't understand.

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry to hear. Hugs and prayers to you and may your husband's Memory be Eternal.

I agree, PM.

I'm so sorry for your loss.  I'm sure that the requester will understand.  Just PM them with the info and then put your shelf on hold until you can participate again.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.  Cancel the request, PM the requestor, put your shelf on hold, and stop worrying about things at PBS until you're ready.

Indeed, this is the last thing you should have to be worrying about now.  I'm so sorry Ginger.  I'll be thinking about you.
