LOWER MAKEFIELD, Pa. (CBS) – One by one the names of 18 people killed on 9/11 who called Bucks County home were read aloud.
Joshua Scott Reiss was 23 –years-old when he was working on the 105th floor of the North Tower.
His sister Jennifer was just 11 at the time.
“He was working for Cantor Fitzgerald that day and unfortunately he was high enough up that he was not able to make it out,” she said.
For Jennifer Reiss and others who lost loved ones on that terrible day 11 years ago, the Garden of Reflection offers a place for them to reflect, honor and remember.
“I think this place is amazing. I think it’s great that the families in this community and the people in Pennsylvania have somewhere to go. Many do not have bodies. So I think it’s great that we all come together and make this community and this memorial so wonderful,” Reiss said.
The first-ever nighttime remembrance ceremony on September 11th at the memorial drew hundreds, including 12-year-old Tyler Senko who was just a baby when his dad Larry was killed on 9/11.
“I never met him, but I feel the emotional connection around this time with my family members,” Tyler Senko said.
“It’ll never be forgotten, and certainly the family members and the children will keep the spirit alive,” Tyler’s mom, Debra Senko Goldman, said.
The theme Tuesday night was “Remembrance in Light” and Eyewitness News’ Pat Ciarocchi was the emcee.
“Right after 9/11, I met some of the families and felt like they could’ve been from any of our neighborhoods,” Ciarocchi said.
