The 9/11 Decade: Harrison Woman Remembers Sept. 11 - Original story ran 9/10/11
The tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks were felt throughout the country. The Daily Harrison brought the story closer to home when we spoke to Margaret Scarcella, a Harrison resident who lost two relatives on that tragic day.
Scarcella's cousin Joe Romagnolo and brother in-law Paul M. Fiori both died in the attacks while working in Manhattan. Scarcella made the trek into Manhattan on Sept. 11, 2011 to be a part of the 10-year anniversary reflection.
She and members of her family also made it a point to share their memories of Romagnolo and Fiori by getting tattoos on their bodies. Scarcella has a tattoo for both men on her legs and said members of her family have received similar marks.
