PARSIPPANY, NJ- At a beautiful, poignant and emotional ceremony that was planned by county leaders Larry Ragonese, John Bonanni and Scott DiGeralamo with the help and support of the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders was held this evening, September 10 at the Morris County 9/11 Memorial on West Hanover Road.

There wasn't a dry eye in the crowds when Keynote Speaker, John Fila, FDNY Firefighter Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9 and Boonton native took the podium. He spoke of that fateful day and of the courage of his colleagues running into the buildings, when everyone else was running out.  He spoke of loss and remembrance and honor to his fallen brothers and friends.  

Following the presentation of colors by the Morris County Police Departments, the National Anthem was sung by students of Morris County School of Technology - Brooke Shanley and Meghan Muth.  The Morris Choral Society sang "God Bless America" and a moving welcome was given by Doug Cabana, Freeholder Director.  After Remarks by John Bonanni, County Administrator and the Key Note address by Chief Fila, the attendees lit candles of remembrance while the names of the Morris County Victims were read by Freeholders John Cesaro and Tom Mastrangelo.

The ceremony concluded with the Police Pipes performing "Amazing Grace" and a 21 Gun Salute by the Morris County Sheriff's Office.  Michael DelVecchio of Bugles Across America played "Taps". and an "Irish Blessing" was performed by the Morris Choral Society.  After Larry Ragonese's closing remarks, the Morris Choral Society sang "America the Beautiful" as the guests and attendees reflected at the memorial, comforted each other and then left quietly and somberly.
