    Vinnie was a friend of my sons, he was always sweet, polite and respectful to my husband and I. We would run into Vinnie everywhere and he always had a good story or something funny he would tell us about. We we’re both just crushed that he’s gone. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family

    Julie and Doug, Selene and Ryan Michael my deepest sympathy for your son and brother Vinnie. I loved when he used to come into the classroom to help out in the mornings. We would include him in our morning circle with the kids. We had a lot of laughs. He was such a gentle soul gone too soon from this world. Love you sweet Vinnie. Rest in Peace.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Vincent was an energetic and clever third grader in our classroom many years ago. Even then we could tell he would have a future interest related to vehicles. I’m so sorry for your loss. Special thoughts especially to Julie, Selene, and Michael.

    We were sorry to hear of Vincent’s passing. He was one of my favorite students. He loved drawing, reading and writing all about cars. All we talked about was cars. We’ll be thinking about all of you at this difficult time. Diane and Dan Doyle

    When I think of you, it puts a smile on my face. I will always remember, you riding your bike, with your boom box ( I knew when you were coming home or going to work. You were always eager to help Brian, & Brian loved that you would, sit with him & have a conversation. We loved hearing stories about your dog ( they always say a dog is your best friend). On our way, to saying goodbye, but the sun is shining & that is a sign to me saying the angels are welcoming you up to heaven. You can Rest In Peace.
