It was another sad milestone for 9/11 families today. The medical examiner’s office in New York has announced it will halt efforts to try and identify the remains of the 2,749 people who were killed in New York on Sept. 11, 2001:
Speaking in the Bronx yesterday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the remains would stay at the memorial park behind Bellevue Hospital Center in Manhattan and will eventually be moved to the World Trade Center memorial.
“We’re doing the best we can,” Bloomberg said when asked what he would tell the families.
It was that hope that Kurt and Diane Horning, who lost their son, Matthew, 26, are holding on to.
“We don’t have enough remains to bury in a shoebox,” said Kurt Horning, 59, of Scotch Plains, N.J.
“I don’t think people realize what that means. It’s very devastating.”
