Local 9/11 Victims Remembered

Westfield 9 11 ceremony

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — A 9/11 memorial ceremony was held at the Sons of Erin in Westfield this evening.

Three people with connections to the club were killed in the attacks.  Those victims were Tara Shea Creamer, Brian Murphy and Daniel Trant.

We spoke to Brian’s sister Ann about what today means.

“The community of Westfield and the surrounding communities are just unbelievably supportive. From day one, they started arriving at the door, what can we do? How can we help? How can we support you?” says Ann Murphy, “The love is palpable. And that’s what sustains you, to know that you’re not in this alone.”

She says the family actively works to keep her brother’s memory alive for his daughters who were only three and five when their father died.
