After Jennifer Gonzales lost her father to COVID-19, she pitched the idea to the City of Harlingen to have a memorial for those who have lost their lives due to the virus.

"They loved the idea, they though it was a great idea," Gonzales said. 

A couple weeks ago, the city approved the idea and are still figuring out what the memorial could be. 

"Either a city building, or a wall as a mural, a park where they can place a bench or garden," Harlingen Environmental Director Josue Ramirez said. "The plan is to move forward on selecting a site, finalizing how it's going to be implemented."

As of now, there is no set date on when the memorial will be finished.
