RIDGEWOOD, N.J. — They've had a son or daughter killed while serving in the U.S. armed forces, and this Sunday, Sept. 27, American Legion Post 53 will honor them at Ridgewood's 4th Annual Gold Star Mother's Day.Luminaries lighted to honor the dead heroes will be available for donations before the 7 p.m. memorial service in Van Neste Square's Memorial Park on North Pleasant Ave.

"As members of a grateful Nation, we owe a debt we can never repay, but hold this sacred obligation forever in our hearts, minds, and actions," the 2011 Presidential Proclamation commemorating Gold Star Mother's Day says.

"We honor their sacrifice, and stand with our service members, military families, and Gold Star families as they have stood for us."
