Vincent Morello was remembered by his firefighter brother, Marc Morello, and his father, retired Battalion Chief John Morello, for his decision to work Sept. 11, though his shift had ended the night before.
"Parents are not supposed to eulogize their children," John Morello told mourners in Trinity Church in Middle Village, Queens. But "when we go to his house each day and take his children to school, we see him in their faces."
Marc Morello noted that his 34-year-old brother had been a FDNY mechanic on Randalls Island for 12 years before becoming a firefighter 18 months ago
