My deepest sympathies to all of the families and friends of those involved in the Connecticut school shootings.  I am sure their heartache is more than I can ever know.  I don’t think I can write anything here that captures the pain that so many must be going through.  I’m not sure there are words for it.

I heard that a Starbucks partner lost her life in the this tragic shooting.  A news article reported that a part-time barista at the Mill Plains Road Starbucks in Danbury, Connecticut was among those killed in the school shooting.

The news article about barista Lauren Rousseau, who also worked as a substitute teacher, is here.

According to the Starbucks Partners Facebook page, Starbucks is in contact with Lauren’s family.

Rest in Peace Lauren Rousseau.
