Dear Family and Friends,
On April 19th, 1995 the Alfred P. Murrah Building in Oklahoma City was bombed, senselessly taking the lives of 168 people and injuring nearly 700. Today, fifteen years later, we would like to take a moment to remember the men, women and children who were lost and to extend our deepest sympathies to the families, survivors and all who were affected.
Until 9/11, the bombing in Oklahoma City marked the worst terrorist attack in United States history. In the days and years following 9/11, many of us experienced firsthand the acts of kindness and support from the families and survivors of the Oklahoma City Bombing. Their unprecedented response to the tragic loss they suffered demonstrated an amazing example of resiliency and faith that was truly inspirational and provided our families with hope for the future.
Realizing that anniversaries are often difficult, we would like to offer our continued encouragement and support, just as the Oklahoma City community has given to us over the years. We will always be grateful for their generosity of time and friendship – and they will be in our thoughts and prayers as they gather together today to remember their loved ones.
