WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Survivors of the three 9/11 victims from Westfield placed a wreath this morning, honoring their dead, at the city’s 9/11 Memorial.
Five years ago the city of Westfield created the 9/11 memorial on North Elm Street.
Inscribed are the names of Tara Kathleen Creamer, Brian Murphy, and Daniel Trant.
Family members placed a wreath at the monument and recalled the tragedy that took the lives of their loved ones.
“I think of Tara, I think of all the poor people at the World Trade Center who suffered on this day,” said James Shea, Tara’s father. “Like I said it before, no mattered what our differences are in this country we are the greatest county on earth.”
“It’s a trying time losing Danny at the World Trade Center was heartbreaking and it never goes away every year, it comes back and sometimes the littlest thing reminds us,” said Mary Trant, mother of Daniel Trant.
And in the words of Ann Murphy, whose brother Brian died inside the Twin Towers, it doesn’t seem possible that 17 years have passed since that horrible day.
