The West Seneca community made an incredible display of generosity Friday night.

Neighbors came together at Rusty Buffalo in support of Anthony and Angelo Cirrito. The twin 20-year-old brothers are now caring for their two younger siblings after their father died from lung cancer.

Friday night, their father's old boss surprised the brothers by announcing he would reimburse them for the cost of the funeral.

"He would be so proud of his sons that have stepped up," said Frank Addeo Jr. "We're just here to back them so they get through what they have to get through."

"People are amazing, community is amazing," said older brother Charles Cirrito. "I can't thank them enough."

In addition to the donation made Friday night, community members have contributed more than $5,000 - and counting - to the brothers.
