Slain EMT s Family Says Thanks

COVINGTON, La. — The overwhelming support of friends and colleagues of my son, Mario J. “Chip” Scramuzza Jr., following his tragic death has been a great comfort to me, his mother, his son and his entire family. It is truly wonderful to know how well-liked and respected he was.

We especially thank the countless number of firefighters, law enforcement officers and emergency medical service staff members who organized and participated in Chip’s magnificent memorial services.

Thank you, too, for the loving support of the Kehoe France School/Northshore family, and to all the (unfortunately anonymous to us) donors to the Gianni Scramuzza Benefit Fund.

Mario J. Scramuzza Sr.
