The last few weeks have been very difficult for our community. We have been hit with waves of sadness as we lost some very special people. We came together in vigils and funerals with aching hearts for the ones we lost. Our thoughts and our prayers are with the families who have suffered these terrible losses. I am sure the support from family, friends, classmates and neighbors is greatly appreciated. It was a credit to our community to see such an outpouring of love and support. The display is evidence that this is a tight and caring community, even if we sometimes conceal it too well.
