I am so sorry for your loss.I just found out about this. I went to school with Vince from kindergarten and lived a block a way. Just this past year I reconnected with him on facebook and was so happy to see all his family pictures and how proud he was of his beautiful family. Also loved seeing his beautiful cabinet creations. I remember him as one of the sweetest and cutest boys I knew as a young girl..always a really nice person. I am sure he will be greatly missed...Take care and I will keep you all in my prayers.

May Jesus and all the angels guide and comfort all his family. And may Vince, one of those angels, live within our hearts until we meet him again. God Bless all of you. I know Vince will sadly be missed.
