Laura Remus is overcome with emotion during a memorial at the cenotaph on Saturday, Oct. 25 to pay respects to Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. More than 50 people gathered under sombre skies, raising their voices with the singing of the national anthem and bowing their heads in a moment of silence for the two recently slain members of the Canadian Armed Forces. Royal Canadian Legion Branch #62 President Henry Butters was pleased with the turnout, particularly in view of the short notice for the impromptu ceremony. Organized as part of a national effort by veterans, Canadians from around the country gathered at their cenotaphs in a show of support and respect.
