    I am so sorry for your loss, Cindy. Vince was a giant amongst us, a wonderful, kind, caring, and giving man. The world is lesser without him in it. As I said before, I will be there for you if you need me.

    Vince was a wonderful human being. Gregarious, full of life and the life of the party. A loving husband and family man. He never met a stranger. He will be mourned and missed deeply. But it is my wish that his life be celebrated. May his memory be eternal!!
