†† It has been one year since the tragic loss of our beloved Kristen. During this short time we have taken great strides. The railroad safety barriers you see here today represent a huge victory for T.E.A.R.S. and Kristenís Law supporters. Our very own safety group working in conjunction with Villa Park, Lombard, and Railroad officials now serve notice to other communities that we have become leaders in promoting railroad safety in the state of Illinois. Thank you for all your hard work and support.
