Emotions were still raw for family member's of the 87 people killed in the Happyland social club fire who were remembered during a special mass held on Sunday, March 23, at St. Thomas Aquinas Church on Crotona Parkway. Joined by local officials, mourners marched to a nearby park dedicated to the memory of those who perished in the blaze. This year mourners were joined by Francisco Quezada, the Counsel General of Honduras as a majority of those killed were from Honduras. The deliberately set blaze remains the third deadliest blaze in New York City history.
