Friends and Co-Workers:

and indeed across the world, are banning together to express their
sympathy and horror. While many of our thoughts and prayers are
with the victims and their families, there are venues available
for those who wish to give a little more of themselves.

Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, and it will be forwarded to the
