By the time I walked in my front door, there were several messages about the tragic loss of one of Beverly's own. Marine Lance Cpl. Conner Lowry was killed March 1st while serving in Afghanistan. He was a St. John Fisher and Brother Rice graduate who loved sports and all things Irish. His dream was to return home and become a Chicago firefighter.

Please keep Conner's family in your thoughts and prayers.
