VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com):  The mass shooting that occurred in the city of San Bernardino impacted many people and captured the hearts and attention of the nation. As families of loved ones who were injured or killed started speaking out, heartbreaking stories began to surface. One local family from the Victor Valley shares a similar story that hasn’t been heard until now. 

For those who have visited “M Cupcakes n Pastries” in Victorville all agree the owner and her family offer exemplary customer service and delicious pastries. Recently, when customers stopped by the location to get some of their favorite desserts they were saddened by what they saw. Not only was the small bakery temporarily closed, but the reason for the temporary closure was heart-wrenching to the regular customers who grew to like the kind owners.

The owners were devastated upon learning that their 28-year-old son, a county employee, was one of the many injured in the December 2nd mass shooting at Inland Regional Center. Calling it one of the “worst days of our lives” the grief-stricken parents posted a note on the business door that said, “Our son was one of the victims in the San Bernardino Shooting. We are thankful he is still here but is currently injured and still has a long road to recovery.”

The family shut it’s doors during what is considered to be the busiest time of the year for many businesses.

The note continued to say, “As a business owner we would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused but because of the circumstances we have temporarily close the shop. For those who had placed orders and Christmas donations we deeply apologize for not fulfilling them. As parents I hope you understand the decision we have made.”

M Cupcakes n Pastries bake fresh pastries daily and people from all over the Victor Valley flock to the location for one of their many specialties. Their macaroon cookies are my favorite, cupcakes are really good, not too sweet with great flavors. Family owned and operated, every time I have been in there they are very friendly,” said customer, Faith Forgey.

A family friend told Victor Valley News that although the family is somewhat private and would have had it no other way than to be with their son, because of the closure they are having financial difficulties.

The location is set to reopen on Monday, January 11th.  “It would be nice if they are flooded with customers next week to get back on track,” said Kimberle Mitchem, in an email to Victor Valley News.
