    Our condolences to you and all the kids. When Vinnie invited Renelle and myself into his ski house way back in 1999 I really got to know and most of all enjoy being around him. Always had a smile on his face, especially up in ski country!
    Whether it was getting a haircut, selling him skis at Chisholms or making a few runs with him at Sunday River, he was always such a pleasure to be around.
    He will be missed.
    Jim and Renelle

Sympathy and thamks to his wife who was always so thoughtful to send Vinnie with wonderful food to share at our ski loft. It will not be the same at the mountains with our dear friend. Rest in peace Vinnie.. You will always be remembered and truly missed. I have a prior commitment cut will try to make it to the funeral home if I can tomorrow.

    Our deepest sympathy to you Carol and the entire Dolci family. Vinny was a cherished member of our family and he will be missed by all. Mom especially loved her appointments and friendship with Vinny. Of course there were those nervous days when she occasionally wanted her hair left a bit long, because as long as sports were the topic of discussion, Vinnie’s hands and his lips never stopped moving. He was the definition of a friend, as the simple utterance of the name Vinny near any branch of the Corvino Family Tree was sure to elict a smile and feelings reserved for the type of friend who effortlessly always gives you his best, and for whom generational boundaries did not exist.

    The jazz will be playing for you tonight my friend…
