Night of Healing: Bucks Countians come together to embrace families of four slain young men with love, prayers and hugs

Organizers of the Bucks County 9/11 Garden of Reflection opened their hearts and their memorial for a candlelight service for four young men murdered in the area recently, reported Jeff Werner in Bucks County News.

A Night of Healing supported the family and friends of Jimi Patrick, 19, Dean Finocchiaro, 19, Tom Meo, 21, and Mark Sturgis, 22, who were killed in the first week in July.

Bucks County resident and 9/11 widow Ellen Saracini spoke at the event and said, “May this candlelight vigil and our prayers be the light after darkness and bring some healing and soothing and solace to the families, that they know that we, as a community, are here tonight to offer our prayers for the souls of our boys from Bucks County. And we, as a community, remain as a rock, that we are strong and we support any family in any kind of tragedy. And that they know that they are not alone.”
