I was told the procession was going down central park to 103rd st and east to st. John Fisher can you confirm that route.

Det. Shaved Longcock said...

This is the motorcade not the funeral.

This is his body being brought from Midway Airport home....

Hi, Yes I have a question. this seems to be a slightly different route than the one announced in the
http://southtownstar.suntimes.com/11100140-522/community-invited-to-procession-for-beverly-marine.html yesterday?

Which said
"Lowry’s body is to arrive at 8 a.m. Friday at Midway Airport.

Students and staff at the schools will line the streets for Lowry’s procession home, and the community can do the same, Marine Staff Sgt. Chad Falkos said. Organizers suggest people be present along the route with American flags by 8:45 a.m."

I am an administrator on the http://www.facebook.com/ripcorporallowry and there are 2000+ fans. I want to give them correct information. I've not heard from the family directly yet.

I would really appreciate your help straightening this out.

Black,white or brown- show respect for our fallen soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice! It's sad no matter what race these heroes are! Even my kids ( kindergarten) will be out there with their school saluting a hero who fought for our freedom!! Nice to see the lil Kids out saluting a hero

Rest easy, soldier, your work is done.

We'll pick up the Flag, we'll pick up the gun.

My sincere condolences to the family of
this brave soldier who gave his all.

May you rest in peace, Amen.

With all due respect, Marine's are not soldiers. Marine's are Marines.
God Bless Marine Cpl. Conner Lowry and his family. Rest in Peace. Semper Fi.

Semper Fi Marine!

This is why Ron Paul is the candidate that has received more military campaign contributions than all the other candidates combined and he is the only candidate that served in the military. The troops know what time out is, please vote!

You are the fucking idiot. This hero died in Afghanistan, which was in response to 9/11, not WMD. Typical, ignorant, obama supporting loser.

Word has it that the Dept. of Revenue was ticketing cars @ 103 & Talman, while the neighborhood was out paying their respects.

With all due respect, have some respect for the heartfelt commentary made to Cpl. Lowry and his family.

Your critique of terminology used by a person wishing to convey his condolences was unnecessary and uncalled for.

I am sorry you felt that my comment was a critique, it was not. My son is a Marine that trained with Cpl Lowry. Ask any Marine how they feel about being called a soldier? Soldiers are in the Army. Airmen are in the air force, Gaurdsmen are in the Coast Guard. So, out of respect for Cpl Lowry, he should be referred to as a Marine. That was all I meant by the comment.
