    Please don't shoot me. I'm not a real mailman. It was just a tv show. I hardly ever go to post oiffices. Please don't hurt me.

    I would like to send my regards to the families of these victims. They do have a special po box for these ladies if you would like to send your condolences for their families. If you want more information on the box, please contact the Henning, TN Post office. They both have husbands and children and I can only hope some of us have it in our hearts to send them a card or send the children gifts.

    Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
