• Connie R. Woolfolk of Flossmoor, Illinois

LuAnn Via, President of Lane Bryant stated, "We have received an incredible outpouring of concern, prayers and offers of help from the community and our associates. So many have asked how they can help the families of the victims of this horrible tragedy.

I would like to personally thank each and every person who has telephoned us, emailed us, or visited our stores to relay their support. I thank you all deeply for your heartfelt words."

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of these vibrant women," said Tim Crane, President, Harris Community Bank. "All of us at Harris were shocked by the tragedy and we are honored to join with Lane Bryant and the community to remember their lives."
