Rockland man remembers brother lost on 9/11Posted: Updated:
A Rockland man says watching President Barack Obama's visit to Ground Zero on television today brought back painful memories of the day he lost his firefighter brother.
Perry Sikorsky says his brother, 34-year-old Greg Sikorsky, was a New York City firefighter and Hillcrest volunteer who died while trying to help save people in the south tower.
Sikorsky says that he wanted to do a cartwheel in his living room after hearing news that Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan. He says the death is a relief, but it still doesn't bring closure.
Greg Sikorsky left behind his parents, three brothers, a wife and a son who is now 12 years old.
