Please join Marquette neighbors who are calling for a show of support for Paulie Heenan tonight by lighting a candle on your front porch or in your window. Paulie was a neighbor and the victim of the police-involved shooting on Baldwin Street last Friday. The neighborhood wants to show Paulie's family and the other families involved that they are in their thoughts and that they are sending peace and healing their way.
"Our community is heartbroken over the tragic death of Paulie," said Ald. Marsha Rummel. "We hope this tribute will be a first step to healing in our neighborhood."
The visitation and services for Paulie are tonight at 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., respectively, at Cress Funeral Home, 3610 Speedway Road. There will also be a community healing circle with Reverend David Couper on Sunday, November 18, at 4:00 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1904 Winnebago Street.
