Department of Defense officials grieve over death of former resident

To the Editor:

On behalf of the loss of our son Brad, we would like to thank everyone who called and for the hundreds of cards we received. Also, thank you for the food and the flowers. Your love and kind thoughts were very much appreciated.

We would like to share this letter we received from the Secretary of Defense after Brad's death:

"Dear Mr. and Mrs. Skufca,

"On behalf of all of us at the Department of Defense, I extend my condolences on the loss of your son.

"He was doing important work to modernize and improve security for the Pentagon, and we are grateful for his professionalism.

"You are in our thoughts and prayers.

"With deepest sympathy,

"Sincerely,

"Donald Rumsfeld"

Again, thank you from the Skufca family.
