GOVERNOR AND EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MINUTES
State House, Concord, New Hampshire
August 20, 1997
10:00 a.m.
#15-97

The Governor and Executive Council convened at 10:00 a.m. with all members being present.

The Governor opened the meeting with the following:

It is right that we reflect today on the lives of the people who have been taken from us so brutally and tragically. Now is the time to mourn the dead, and heal the wounded, and comfort the living.

We mourn the deaths of Vickie Bunnell, Dennis Joos, and Troopers Leslie Lord and Scot Phillips, who gave their lives in the performance of their duty.

New Hampshire and the Town of Colebrook have lost four fine people. They were public servants, model citizens, hard workers and loving family members. They will be sorely missed by their families, their friends, and their community.

We remain anxious about the four people who were wounded: John Pfieffer, Jeffrey Caulder, Bob Haas and Wayne Saudners. We pray for their speedy and full recovery.

Today, I have ordered that flags at all state facilities be flown at half mast in respect for those who have lost their lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families as they begin the long struggle to cope with this tragedy and move on with their lives.

To the families, we offer our support in the difficult days ahead. We wish you strength to carry on. We hope that you can take some comfort in knowing that you are not along in your sorrow.
