Christopher Mozzillo 9/11/01



I have the honor of paying tribute to Christopher Mozzillo. Christpher worked for the FDNY, Engine Co. 55 following in the footsteps of his father. Christopher was described as strong, fierce and courageous. But he had a heart of gold, doing anything for his girl friend, Alison Osmer, and always looking out for his sister and his brother, Daniel. Handy around the house, he was the one everyone would look to when something needed fixing.
Mr. Mozzillo traveled in a wide circle of friends, spending summers on the Jersey Shore hopping from beach to restaurant to bar to house party. Wherever he went, he always had a ball. And so did everyone in his company. "He always had a smile on his face," said his mother, Lydia.

Some very touching quotes I found on the web to Christopher.

I can't find the words to expires show much of a void there is in the world since you aren't here. I know that you are watching over your family and friends. It's been a long five years and not a day goes by without the wish that you were here with your family. Love you miss you.
