On May 24th, Maureen Reilly presented a check for $1,000 in memory of her Father, Chicago Firefighter Jack Herrity. She learned of our Monument to First Responders through her involvement with Park Lawn.

After a long carreer as a first responder, Mr. Herrity passed away. His ashes were scattered per his request, but the family longed for a place to gather in his memory. In putting his name permanently on the Monument site, the Herrity family felt that they now had a place to gather for rememberance. They felt it was very fitting that this special place be in Oak Lawn, the village in which his disabled grandson lives and enjoys the support of the community through the good work of Park Lawn.

We want to publicly thank the Herrity Family for their thoughtful and very moving contribution made in the memory of their Father.
