Some families attending the event said they were comforted by being around others who had experienced the tragedy firsthand. Kamila Milewska-Podejma, 37, came to honor her brother, Lukasz Tomasz Milewski, who had worked for a food-service company.
Sometimes when she comes to the site, people are laughing and taking selfies, said Ms. Milewska-Podejma, who was wearing a memorial T-shirt. “That’s why when it’s only family members and first responders it’s different, because they get it,” added Ms. Milewska-Podejma, who had come with her father and daughter. “They feel the same way I’m feeling.”
