The Fire Department added nine names Thursday to the memorial wall for deaths related to World Trade Center illnesses.
The wall was unveiled last year, just before the 10th anniversary of the attacks, with 55 names on it.
Family members said they're proud of their loved ones for the sacrifices they made.
"This is my husband up here on the wall and we just love him and I know everyone will remember him for this," said Elizabeth Longo, a widow of a firefighter. "And he did what he had to do and he would do it all over again."
The wall is housed inside FDNY headquarters in Downtown Brooklyn.
It hangs across from 343 plaques bearing the names of firefighters killed on Sept. 11, 2001.
