    Biography:

    How many guys would blow off drinking with their pals in order to drive their sister to the beauty parlor? ("You got a brother?" asked Anthony Giammona. "Would he do that for you?")

    Mr. Giammona's friend James Maounis would. "He'd take his sister out to dinner," he said, adding that the Maounis clan — two brothers, one sister, the parents — were "more like friends than a family unit."

    In the same vein, Mr. Maounis, Mr. Giammona and their friend Ralph Baione were a lot like family. As teenagers growing up in Gravesend, Brooklyn, in the 1970's, they went to discothèques together; as adults, they biked, traveled, got haircuts and met women together. They even shared a nickname: Way.

    "You're out and you're amongst others, if you give out a 'Waaaaay,' it alerts the people in our group," Mr. Giammona said.

    Mr. Maounis, 42, was an account administrator at Fiduciary Trust on the 90th floor of 2 World Trade Center; his sister Mary Jane worked in the same building on the 62nd floor. She survived.

    MY SORROW FOR YOUR LOSS I WAS AWAY AND JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT JIMBO Posted by Dean Vourderis

    To: Nick, Connie, Mary Jane, and Billy. I share your sorrow. I cried as I watched the calling of the names. I waited to see Jimmy, who I always loved and remembered as a boy. I used to drive him to school with Charles and Chris. As I pass your house I visualize Jimmy cleaning his car or Nicks. I say, Hi Jimmy where ever you are and say a prayer. When Jimmy's name and picture came up I was so consumed with grief. I had to shut off the TV. I will never FORGET HIM. He still lives in the Heart of his family and friends. Unforgettable...
