Teamster Familes Remember Those Lost

August 6, 2010: Bryan Cirigliano was a union steward with the Teamsters, a father, a husband and brother. He was also the first person killed during the workplace shooting rampage at Connectucut's Hartford Distributors.

"I can't believe it. I really can't believe it," said his brother Mike Cirigliano. "Yesterday I saw the look on all my friends. For 35 years I worked with them. We'd always joked around. We had always had our good times. And I saw expression on their faces that broke my heart because what they were feeling and what I was feeling nobody should ever have to feel."
