    Ceremony Held to Mark End of World Trade Center Cleanup

    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


    NEW YORK (AP) -- With the peal of a Fire Department bell, the victims of the World Trade Center's unspeakable horror were remembered Thursday in a ceremony without words.

    The solemn service, marking the end of the 8 1/2-month cleanup after the Sept. 11 attack, began with a bell sounding out the 5-5-5-5 fire code -- four sets of five rings, in memory of 343 fallen firefighters lost at ground zero.

    The first bell rang at precisely 10:29 a.m., the time that the second tower collapsed in a screech of twisting steel and falling concrete.

    An empty stretcher symbolizing the missing was brought up a 500-foot ramp from the pit where workers labored around the clock. It was escorted by an honor guard representing various agencies and victims' groups.

    ``This is the closest point I guess I can get to being with him again,'' said David Bauer III, whose father -- a Cantor Fitzgerald worker -- was one of the more than 1,700 victims for whom no remains have been identified
