As they have done every Sept. 11 since
9/11/01, the members of the Dix Hills Fire Department visited the gravesite
of Chief Terry Farrell, also a firefighter with FDNY Rescue Company 4,
who was killed along with 342 other firefighters at the World Trade Center.
At St. Patrick's
Cemetery in Huntington, Dix Hills firefighters gathered to
pray and remember Terry at this 12th anniversary of 9/11.
Chief Tom Magno and
Company Two Capt. Brett Tepe welcomed the department and guests, which was
followed by a prayer from Ex-Chief and Commissioner Phil Tepe.
After some quiet reflection, one by one, the firefighters placed flowers at Terry's grave and remembered his friendship and dedication as a firefighter.
