Following the tragic loss of two young boys in Paulsboro, New Jersey, the town will be holding a candlelight vigil in remembrance of the brothers on Thursday, March 11. Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Gloucester, Cumberland, Salem) invites local residents to join the vigil in honor of their memories.
Michael and TyYon Rosario, who were just seven and five years-old respectively, passed away on Sunday due to a house fire. Although the boys were rescued by firefighters, they died as a result of injuries sustained in the fire.
“Although I did not personally know Michael and TyYon, my heart breaks at this immeasurable loss,” said Burzichelli. “My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of these bright young boys whose lives were taken far too soon.”
The candlelight vigil will be held at 5pm in the Borough Parking Lot between Washington Street and Adams Street. Burzichelli invites members of the community to attend.
“Paulsboro is a small, close-knit community, which means many of us are feeling this loss deeply right now,” said Burzichelli, a current resident and former mayor of Paulsboro for over a decade. “A candlelight vigil is a way for us to come together and show our support for our fellow community members who are grieving the loss of Michael and TyYon.”
