To say that we are deeply saddened by the tragedy in your state this morning does not begin to express our feelings about this horrific event. Our thoughts are with the families and all who have been and will be touched by this terrible act. We know our members in Connecticut, particularly those in the Newtown area, will become personally involved with this tragedy by supporting families during their time of grief.

We reached out to John Cascio, executive director of the Connecticut Funeral Directors Association, and we are forwarding a supply of grief support materials from our inventory that would be appropriate for the families and friends of those who have died. John will have these materials available if you have a family who may benefit from them. The materials are expected to arrive at his office Monday.

The items included are:
