June 23, 2007 – BUILDING WITH BRICK AND MORTAR

10/07/2009

Mom and Dad visited the new Detroit RiverWalk today and shared with us that they had bought a Firek Family brick.  I think their brick is located between the fountain and the carousel.  It’s something they would totally do together: be a part of the community, donate to a cause, leave a legacy. 

I think their gesture was definitely all of these things.  But potentially a bit more about leaving a legacy.  Leaving as many footprints as possible that say, “This world was touched by Frank Firek”, “This world is better because of him”, “He helped create great things”, “Never forget he was here”, “Never let him die.”
