Q: What are the plans for the physical memorial?

A: We are not in the planning stages of any physical memorial right now, though we are currently saving some funds to contribute to an eventual memorial in Newtown, it’s premature to commit funds to any concepts at this time because of the acute and immediate financial and moral support needs of those who have been affected by this tragedy. When the time is right, we will work with the families and the town to contribute to a proper memorial.
