Dear Roger, Lynn and Family,I cannot express my sympathy & empathy enough at this time!I cannot thank you enough for putting it to the media and teaching this country how to make this about the victim and not the accused. Noelle had Great Role Models to learn from and went on to teach what she had learned. You are very brave & through your actions,I think you have changed the way media will present these tragedies to the public.I hold you,your family and most of all Noelle in highest regard. Sue

I wanted to send my condolences to the Pacquette family. I was saddened to learn of this tragic loss, and then ever more so, when I thought back to the fact, that I worked with her brother Joe, at the SSEC. I wanted to send my thoughts and prayers to the him as well. Be strong my young friend. there is much support out there for you and your family. I can't imagine your pain, but I will share your sorrow. I wish you in the future peace in your own hearts.
My deepest sympathy
