Hundreds gathered in Reeves Park on Sunday evening to celebrate the memory of Tommy Kelly, a former Marine Street resident and New York City firefighter who died in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11.
The annual candlelight vigil consisted of a solemn walk from Marine Street down to the corner of Park Road and Sound Avenue, where a memorial for the fallen firefighter sits.
"This is such a great community," said Bob Kelly, Tommy's older brother and a retired New York City firefighter himself, who also served at Ground Zero. "They did this. They put it together, every year. This is such a special place."
