WEST ORANGE - A ceremony marking 14 years since the Sept. 11 attacks was held Friday in West Orange.

The ceremony was held at Eagle Rock Reservation, where a monument of a bronze bald eagle stands - along with a book with the names of those who died from Essex County.

David Robertson, who lost his son during the attacks, said it might be the final year he attends the ceremony.

"We come here because we do not have a cemetery to go to as we have never had any human remains returned or personal effects," said Robertson.
