I’m more than saddened by the loss of lives that’s happened on our Independence weekend. We, as a community, are better than this. This is a senseless act that took place for what?
My guys would have loved to spend this weekend with their loved ones, just like you!! NO, someone chose to make it different. WE are tirelessly working and asking, for our clergy, social service and certainly the public to help us find out who did this. WE are better than this!! Please call and help US keep your community a safe place.
