  1. As all of you have said, my condolenscences go out the families, friends and co-workers of these two beautiful women. I too, am a window clerk @ the Finksburg Post Office, located in Finksburg , MD, and I could not imagine being faced with such a horror. To all postal employees, be careful, watch and observe your surroundings at all times, and most of all, be kind to one another.

    Peace and god bless!!!

  2. okay, everyone of you who work for the USPS, send your cards and letters of sympathy to the Hennings Post Office, show your support. I am planning to distribute cards for co-workers signatures this week. This is unbelievably sad, disturbing, outrageous. They were earning an honest days living, doing their jobs and THUGS who obviously were not earning a living, decided somehow in their dangerous minds, to take these lives. They will be caught. Dont under estimate the USPS on that one! But it will not bring back these two lovely ladies. What a tragedy.

  3. do people think window clerks have money like bank of america. the window clerk was probably lucky if she had 100.00 at 8:30 in the morning. so she was killed for absolutely nothing and that is the sad thing and her coworker what was that about. sick world sick people. sincerest condolences to all who know and loved these two fine postal workers. together in solidarity.

  4. I am so sad about this matter. No place of business need this kind of issue….I give my condolences to all the employees families.

GOD BLESS AMERICAN, MY HOME, SWEET HOME..and the person that survive this awful situation… Safety at the work place is so important to all of us…large facilities and small ones, too..
