Before Ken and Sharon Ambrose headed to Washington, D.C., for the Pentagon crash memorial service, they visited "The Healing Fields."
The 3,000 U.S. flag display at Spring Hill Cemetery in Huntington honors loved ones who passed on, in particular the MU plane crash victims, local veterans from all wars and Paul Ambrose.
Since their son’s death 11 years ago, the Ambroses continue to keep his memory alive. The couple has attended several ceremonies over the years in Washington, D.C.
As Ken Ambrose looked over the sea of U.S. flags Monday in Spring Hill Cemetery, he said, "It is healing in helping us in this particular time. But there will never be closure."
Sharon Ambrose said, "It's just overwhelming to see all these flags blowing. There's a spiritual aspect here, and it really means a lot to a lot of people."
A bronze bell was recently cast, honoring Paul Ambrose, veterans and M.U. plane crash victims. It will soon be attached to a tower near Paul Ambrose's gravesite.
The bell tower project is lacking $105,000 for completion. Greater Huntington Park and Recreation hopes grants and or donations will help foot the bill.
