May the God of all comfort be with you during this difficult time in your life. We all yearn for better conditions. It is refreshing to know that God's word speaks of a time when all sorrows will be gone and that mankind will live in beautiful surroundings with nothing to fear.- Isaiah 65:17,21-24, will shed light on this.

Dear Meg, Sarah and Angela,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all today and in the days ahead as you grieve the loss of a wonderful husband and adoring father. My thoughts of Vince go back to the 80's when we worked at Plant High School. He always had a great work ethic and was so student-centered. As an assistant principal working with student absenteeism, I worked closely with
Vince and admired his dedication as he made home visits to ensure that the student was okay...

Everyone who knew him left him a better person then before. it is with great love that I know Vince is now resting with his maker. His memory will live on in the stories, dreams, and lessons he taught us all. We have lost a great...

I was so sorry to hear about coach Sussman's passing. What a good man he was, I know there are countless individuals who's lives he touched. He put us through much pain, and pushed our limits as a football team. Looking back at all of that I would not trade it for the world. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time. Take comfort in knowing how many good seeds he planted in a sometimes cruel world. God Bless, Jack Hamrick / Class of 1976
