CORPUS CHRISTI - Corpus Christi is one step closer to having a memorial to honor first responders killed in the line of duty.
The Devary Durrill foundation made a huge contribution to the project today.
It is something Nueces County Commisioner Mike Pusley has wanted to do for more than a year, he just hasn't had the funds to make it happen.
Today, William Durrill - whose daughter is a Houston police officer - donated $25,000 to the Fallen Heroes Memorial Committee.
The memorial will be built next to the courthouse facing Leopard Street.
It will honor fallen police officers, firefighters and other first responders.
Durrill hopes others will follow his lead and donate as well.
The project is expected to cost around $150,000.
