Cousin Vince was a great guy admired by all. Losing a loved one is difficult. It doesn’t matter how old they were or whether it was sudden or expected. Hold memories and traditions tight and frequently speak about him with each other. Allow yourself to go through the 5 stages of grief, it may take years. He will forever be in your hearts. Love, cousin Maryann.

You will be missed for many reasons. Your love of the Mets and Devils. Like everything else it was a passion for you. That passion was evident in anything you got involved with. Just to be in your company there was a feeling like no other, a feeling of warmth, calmness, security, a feeling felt with very few people on this planet. From the bottom of my heart and soul I will always hold on to the memories of having grown up and gone through some chapters in life together. Thank you Vinny JR and thank you for being Vinny JR from now on always in my thoughts and prayers....
