I know one of the guys who was killed. He was a jolly kid in school, and a dedicated fireman and policeman. He leaves behind a family. I'm having a tough time right now, it's not going to be a very merry Christmas for me.

The killer, I have been told (but not confirmed in news) was recently released from prison for killing his mother with a hammer.
They will live a long time, these men of the South Pacific. They, like their victories, will be remembered as long as our generation lives. Longer and longer shadows will obscure them, until their Guadalcanal sounds distant on the ear like Shiloh and Valley Forge. --- Michener, Tales of the South Pacific
