HIGH POINT — Employees at Samson Marketing facilities held candlelight prayer vigils here this week in sympathy with those affected by the shootings in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six adults lost their lives Friday.

"It was something which was spontaneous and an expression of both sorrow and support for all of those touched by this disaster," said Kevin O'Connor, president and CEO of Samson Marketing, whose furniture brands include Universal, Legacy Classic and Craftmaster. "I am so very proud of our people and the level of caring that we have for one another and those in need."

He said the events in Connecticut "touched all of our hearts" as Americans and as parents.
