    My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Vinny. He was one of the greatest people I ever met and was a childhood friend all the way thru high scool and like usual everyone goes there seperate ways and loses touch. One of my best memories and there was a bunch is when Vinny ran for class secretary and since he was a pretty shy guy at that time I managed his campaign and WE WON I will never forget the joy on his face and how happy he was. I will miss you buddy and regret I never got a chance to say goodbye to my friend.

    Dear friend, words can not describe how saddened I was upon hearing about your son Vincent’s passing. I can only imagine the devastating loss you and Chris must feel at losing a son and brother so young…. Although I only met and spoke with Vincent a few times, it was obvious how devoted you were to one another. Rose and Chris, though your hearts are broken, our faith teaches us that we will see one another again. Vincent will always live on in your hearts and memories in this life. Until you meet again, may God’s grace sustain you both.

    My deepest sympathy,

    I went to college with Vincent. I played rugby with him and we were roommates senior year along with a couple other guys. Vinny was one of the best people I met at UML. Nothing but heart. Always ready to help anyone, great sense of humor, worked and played hard, and always loyal. I will be making a donation to Good Samaritans in his name. I know he is in a better place now. Death is not the end of anything, just a transformation. Godspeed.
