For My First Cousin Brian Cannizzaro

My first cousin, Brian Cannizzaro, was a fireman in Ladder 101 in Redhook, Brooklyn.  He was 30 years old and left behind a beautiful wife, Jackie, and a one-year-old son, Christopher.  Brian was supposed to be off on Sept. 11, but he was remodeling a house for his family and he thought that he could use the overtime.  Brian died with six other members of Ladder 101.  His body was recovered on November 11, 2001 and his family misses him a great deal.  Brian is survived by his parents, two brothers and their wives as well as his son, wife and many, many heartbroken aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
