Thecompany that lost its founder and several employees in a workplace shooting onThursday says it is devastated by the deaths, but the violence and loss will not destroy thecompany.

We are all deeply shocked and horrified by last week's events at Accent Signage Systems, Inc.

Accent Signage mourns the death of our founder, three dear employees and a treasured friend. We continue to pray for our colleagues who are recovering from their injuries.

This senseless act has devastated us, but it will not destroy us. We fully intend to honor the memories of our colleagues and friends by continuing to grow the company they helped build through their hard work and dedication.

We are incredibly grateful to our customers, vendors and suppliers for their show of support during our most difficult time. They have been understanding and supportive throughout this tragedy, and we will not forget it.

Out of respect for the police investigation, and with deep compassion for those who are mourning and still recovering, we will not be releasing additional information at this time.

We ask that you please respect the privacy of all of the families affected by this tragedy.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the City of Minneapolis and particularly to the emergency response teams and to Mayor R.T. Rybak for his leadership at this difficult time.
