A solemn ceremony Sunday evening marked the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center Memorial Gardens in Middletown, the sprawling township that lost 37 of its residents in the terrorist attacks that day.
Among those present was Carmen Devaux, whose family lost a friend and co-worker, Louis J. Minervino.
“I always come [to the memorial service] because of Lou,” she said. “We just think of Lou all the time.”
The memorial ceremony provided Devaux and hundreds of Middletown residents with “a source of comfort,” she said.
