Almost two months after a Kensington fire claimed the lives of two Philadelphia firefighters, family members and the firefighter community are still searching for answers.
"We come today trying to — still trying to — understand the why. And, for me at least, the most frustrating part of that is trying to know or understand what you cannot know or understand," Mayor Nutter said during an all-faiths gathering for fallen firefighters Capt. Robert Neary and Lt. Daniel Sweeney on Wednesday morning.
About 60 people, including the Sweeney and Neary families and a dozen religious leaders, attended the memorial service at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. It was organized through the Mayor's Office, the Fire Department, and the Religious Leaders Council of Greater Philadelphia.
