  1. candleI have so many wonderful memories of Vinny & am so sad today. He was a unique individual with a big personality and an equally big heart. He had no airs about him, he was down to earth and always “told it like it was”. He was always kind to me and always made me feel special. AND he always made me laugh! I asked him once while listening to his brothers play guitar, “Don’t you play?” and he said, “Sure I do. I play the ponies and I play cards.” I am laughing through my tears. God bless you Vinny and keep you in his care.

  2. For my other Dad, Big Vin, Rest in Peace and Fly with the Angels.
    Our deepest Condolences to the Family. Jen, I am so so sorry. I am here for you Always.

    Love Forever
