Sympathy cards and letters for families touched by the Newtown, CT school shooting

I'm not sure what anyone could do for the families touched by today's elementary school shooting in Newtown, CT.  There are no answers that can make any of it make sense or make it right.  However the few times I have grieved over the death of a loved one, having someone else express their condolences helped a small bit.  

So if you would like to write a letter, consider writing a letter to the family of one or more of the victims below.  The US Postal service has setup a dedicated PO Box for doing so.
