People gathered at Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla Sunday afternoon to pay tribute to those who died during the Sept. 11 attacks.
The tribute ceremony took place at The Rising, a monument that honors the 111 victims from Westchester who died on 9/11.
Two stones were added last year that bear the names of the first responders who died from 9/11-related illness.
This year, friends and family remembered Captain Phil Pinto, a 32-year veteran of the East Chester Fire Department. He died in January from pancreatic cancer, a result of his time spent at ground zero following the attacks.
"When we see Phil's name engraved on the monument, there is a huge sense of pride and honor, but it's also coupled with huge sense of grief and loss," said his widow, Lisa Pinto.
