Statements from the victims' families

Families from the two victims who were killed at a Portland-area mall released public statements through the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

Statement from the Forsyth family:

Steven Mathew Forsyth was a loving husband, father of two children, son, brother, uncle, youth sports coach and friend to the many people who had the privilege to meet him.

Steve was one of the most passionate people with a true entrepreneurial spirit that drove him to start his business, Coastoms. He had a great sense of humor and a zest for life. He had vision and a belief in others that brought great joy and value to many lives.

He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Statement from the Yuille family:

Cindy was everybody's friend. She was a wonderful person who was very caring and put others first.

The family has advised us they want time and space to grieve their loss and will not be giving interviews at this time.
