My dear sweetheart,
Wishing you a happy birthday ( Aug 2)!
Miss you much!!! I am ever grateful to have been married to a wonderful and great husband as you and our children are blessed to have you as a father. Our children are doing very well and making us proud in all they do and achieve daily. David is now a great swimmer!! He won so many swimming events this summer. On your birthday, David was the AE Finley Swim team MVP award recipient. Jeremy made the top classic soccer team and is doing great! He got to go to Charlotte on your birthday to watch Liverpool versus AC Milan soccer game!Kristine(your Miss, one and only!)is growing into a beautiful young lady. She is trying out for track and field at school and has turned out to be great cook:) Wish you were here to see all these and experience it all.
I imagine the big smile on your face and your big hugs and and wonder "why" Only God knows why. God is taking care of us very well!Your legacy lives on.
Love you much!

Vin Vin,
This is your pal Theo-Theo writing in your remembrance. You know God has always impacted his words of knowledge, visions, prophecies ,signs and wonders of what is to take place in the spirit but in your situation he kept your departure, your return home to him secret from us. We were together October 15th, 2011 at the Events Cultural Centers- the last night out before your demise. There is something in spirit that remains remarkable and unexplaineable about that night, how you embraced and hugged me ,and asked of my family with deep regards. I now realized, that on that day , you meant to bid your best friend farewell from this world; I wish I knew that will be the last time we will meet in flesh. Our friendship was crafted and put together by God himself in 1981 when you moved to Raleigh from Baltimore and we met in a party at Parkwood Apartment off Avent Ferry Road, and we have been friends ever since ,until your death. Vincent you are the best and your life is a blessing, you may have died, but your person ,your character was made to last forever. I thank God for the privilege of knowing you well, and sharing your life. I am confused and missing you greatly, but thankful to God for the gift of you as my friend, who turned out to be more like a brother. As we mourn your passing, I am consoled by the legacy you left behind and ideals you lived for and the gap or vacuum you left will be difficult to fill. Vincent you are a role model, honest, sympathetic, successful, intelligent, quiet and accomplished but feel not in competition with anyone. I'm filled with questions but who am I to question Gods will. I am consoled as I see some qualities of you in your family. As devastating the news of your death has been to me-stunned, overwhelmed with grief- I know I loved you but God love you more, I know you are in a better place. I can write forever about Vincent. Kind, wonderful person , good bye my friend- God be with you- til we meet again

My dearest sweetheart,
I miss you so much! It is difficult to believe that it's been a year and you still have not come home. Wow, death is really powerful to have kept you away from your family this long!!!
It has been difficult. However,God have been taking great care of us. Lord Almighty,the father of the fatherless, husband of the widow has taken over our home and guiding me and our children to excel in all things. You will be so proud!
The love we shared is helping me and the kids, thank you for loving me so much and watching over us even now that you are not with us physically.
God is Faithful and has shown His Goodness and Love and protected us always!
Rest in peace my Sweetheart.
