To commemorate the six Cranford residents who lost their lives on Sept. 11,
2011, the Interfaith Human Relations Committee of Cranford Clergy Council will
host a remembrance ceremony at 7 p.m.
A Color Guard from Boy Scout Troop 80 will meet with the family members
affected by the attacks at the First Presbyterian Church of Cranford. The
families will then be escorted across the street to memorial, where the public
will honor Dean Eberling, Christopher Grady, Robert Lynch, Gregory Milanowycz,
Thomas Regan and Leonard Snyder, who lost their lives during the attacks.
The six names of the fallen will be read as a wreath is placed down at the
memorial. Then, The First Presbyterian Church of Cranford will ring its bells
six times in honor of the six, followed by prayer.
“Let’s remember this day, for hate and anger and fear does not hold sway,” Reverend
John Kile, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Cranford said at the 2011
memorial. “And if you look around, just at the faces here, it has proved
positive that faith, hope, and love, will win the day.”
