The mothers, daughters, husbands, sons, cousins and friends who were lost, are now immortalized on Patriots Day. The vigil, a tribute to Manhasset’s fallen, was held at Mary Jane Davies gazebo under a beautiful evening sky. Each member of the crowd held a candle as they listened to prayers for the living and the dead, as well as those who had assisted in the aftermath who have perished.
