On Feb. 9, 2002 they found my dad's body at the world trade center with a female he was trying to save & 4other officers. He was killed on 9/11. He was a police Lt. For the Port Authority Police Dept. of NY & NJ. He taught the Police Academy. Today instead of crying, I will put my head up & thank the lord above for this blessing. His body had his wedding ring still on and his wallet with photos of myself my mom and my brothers & sisters. He was found50 feet under rubble, this is a miracle. We got to lay him to rest on Feb 12, 2002.

Rest In Peace Robert Cirri Sr., Kathy Mazza , James Romito, James Parham and Stephen Huczko. They were all found TOGETHER with a female they were trying to save!

 

I just wanted to share his story, I feel that way, he lives on.

That makes me cry! I remember being pulled out of school bc my brother's unit was supposed to go up and help and last minute they said no. That day was such chaos and so many lives lost and taken. I am glad you have someone so close that helped as much as he could. A personal savior. He may be gone but he will live on in all your thoughts of him you share and most importantly, your heart.
