    Default Condolences

    All of us at Dalmatian Productions, Inc., wish to express our sincere condolences to the families, colleagues and friends of FF Timothy Lynch and FF John Ginocchetti.

    While we are all deeply saddened here, personally it hits all too close to home for me. I had the honor and privilege to serve in the DeWitt Fire Dept, which is a neighboring department to Manlius. We answered many alarms together in our districts.

    May the memories of their dedication to their families, their departments and their communities serve as an inspiration to us all and a comfort to those close to them. May God bless them.

    God bless you brothers. It wasn't in vain. It was in the highest calling.

    I offer my profound grief that our brothers have left us and wish their families and brother firefighter peace and pride knowing they died doing what they loved to do. It's not a living, it's a calling, and they join the ranks of the bravest of the brave.

    I remain, sincerely yours,

We lost a brother in North Carolina earlier this week, and we bear the grief of your loss as well. Our prayers are with you all during your time of sorrow, as well as with the families of the Fallen Brothers. Special prayers also are on behalf of the injured firefighter for a speedy recovery.

    Unhappy TJ and Gino the true Hero's

    I couldn't believe it as I stood there on scene with my stretcher ready and equipment set up to work as hard as I could to give one of these 2 FF's the best shot at a second chance, when I was taken aside and told that one of the two was a friend of mine. TJ I still can't believe you are gone.I had a lot of fun working with you and beside you many times. I didn't know Gino only of him. But may God Bless you and your families and the Brother's and Sister's of Manlius and Fayetteville. It's going to be a long, hard road...but know you are not traveling it alone.

    TJ and Gino you truely are Hero's.....and will never be forgotten
