Retired New York City firefighter Frank Devlin, left, and other members of the Gulf Coast Retired Firefighters Association give the Freedom Memorial a coat of paint Wednesday morning at Freedom Park in Naples. The organization still needs between $1.2 and $1.5 million to complete the monument that was built to honor those who died on 9/11. 'I stand here and get goose bumps and choked up seeing how far we've come,' said Jerry Sanford, right, North Naples Fire public information officer and a retired New York City firefighter. 'I hope the community will continue to be kind in donating the remaining money.' Lexey Swall/Staff
