Family says goodbye to brothers killed in crash

? A funeral Mass was held Thursday for two brothers killed by a suspected drunken driver in East Meadow.

The Mass for Thomas and Joseph Occhiogrosso, 27 and 28 respective, was held at St. Brigid Roman Catholic Church in Westbury. Family members say the two were extremely close, so it was fitting that they would share a Mass.

The brothers were mowed down while crossing Hempstead Turnpike early Sunday morning. Police say Marine Staff Sgt. James Farr of Garden City was driving drunk at the time.

The Occhiogrossos were buried together at Holy Road Cemetery.
