Funeral home marks 9/11 with remembrance

Special to the Enterprise
Campbell-Plumly-Milburn Funeral Home & Cremation Services placed 415 American flags in their yard -- one for each first responder that died on Sept. 11th.

Campbell-Plumly-Milburn Funeral Home & Cremation Services placed 415 American flags in their yard — one for each first responder that died on Sept. 11th. Twenty years ago, 415 men and women never would have thought they wouldn’t be around for Christmas.

If you drive by this weekend and see 415 flags, take a moment to say a prayer not only for the first responders that died that day, but all 2,977.

Remember the families that 20 years later still grieve because not a single one should have died that day. None of this would be possible without the help of the VFW Post 2792 Barnesville, Keith Carpenter and Commander Clarence Atkinson on loaning us plenty of flags.
