After retiring last summer as Frankford's athletic director, Jack Creighton is helping his son, John, coach the George Washington lacrosse team.
A Port Richmond police detective turned his anguish over his lost son into a way of supporting other greiving parents.
Philadelphia Police Detective Martin Connors, 48, never thought he would believe the words of grief counselor Mickey Hirsch: Connors would eventually help other grieving parents whose children had died.
Timothy Connors died near the high school on May 17. His father thanked students for their outpouring of love.
