A new playground in Breezy Point has been dedicated to the memory of a school psychologist killed in the elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

Mary Sherlach's husband and two adult daughters were on hand Sunday to cut a yellow ribbon for the ceremonial opening of the jungle gym, which sits on a sandy beach by Jamaica Bay.

The Daily News reports that the playground is one of 16 being built by a nonprofit group called The Sandy Ground Project.

It is naming each of the playgrounds after a victim of the tragedy.

Bill Sherlach says his family is "trying to stay positive" and carry on in Mary's work with children.
