To our old friend, Scudder Smith, Publisher/Editor of the Newtown Bee, his family, his staff and their families, and all their friends and neighbors in the beautiful community of Newtown.
The indescribable shock and pain of an unspeakable crime have, as Scudder and his son, David, said, knocked the breath from us and broken our hearts. That is true of everyone we know outside of Newtown, as well.
Most of all, to the families of the 20 children and the 6 school personnel whose lives were tragically taken in this incomprehensible act, our thoughts are with you, and there are no words to express our sorrow.
