Kathy, Frank and I are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your brother. May God give you and your family strength, during this difficult time.
Vince was a good guy, the kind of person who was easy to be with. He was funny but not loud. He was kind and generous. He was apart of my life through his beautiful wife Marilyn. Never forgotten!
