Recently, a member of the sadistic group whose crimes were so disgusting that police compared their acts to Jack the Ripper and Charles Manson, has been set free.

This sad injustice has inspired Lorry’s friends and family to start the initial planning of a physical memorial in Elmhurst, IL - where she was born, grew up and was taken from - in the form of a butterfly park. Lorry loved butterflies and every time we see one, we all think of Lorry.

These victims should never be forgotten and we hope a beautifully designed section of a park can be dedicated to them, all of their memories & the freedom of their beautiful souls.

Thank you all for your support.

*The extent of the memorial will obviously depend on the donations and progress will be updated as planning and drawings are developing. We have no idea how much this will cost at this point. Any extra funds will be donated to a legal charity (TBD) if that applies.

Hey there,
Some of you may have chosen to be an anonymous donor initially (or maybe it’s a system default).
If you don’t see your name, but WANT TO, I can do that for you.
Just add a comment and I’ll see it and change so it’ll show up.
When I see names listed as anonymous, I’m assuming that is a request by the donor.
Thanks again for all of your support.

Just a quick update to everyone who’s donated. We’re looking at alternatives to building our own dedicated park due to lack of funds. We’re now looking into donating to an existing butterfly park and creating a memorial plaque or possibly a park bench in memory of Lorry. If anyone has ties to any park district or knows of an existing butterfly park (as close to Elmhurst as possible), please let us know. Thanks again for all your donations. We’ll make something happen one way or the other.
Thanks again everyone.
Love,
The Borowski Family
