To the Tschamler family. My sincerest sympathy. My dad, Brendan "Denny" Buotte was an old friend of Vinnies. I remember him well. I remember the time we were all at his house when i was a kid for I think the World Series and vinnies t.v. died, so my dad went to our house and got our t.v. and brought it over to Vinnie's! My parents enjoyed hanging out with Vinnie and his wife. And I recall really liking their house. It was so cool! My best to you all at this sad time.

Dear Tab, Deb, and Linda, I am so sorry for your loss!! Tab I know he was your best friend and its so hard to lose that!! I will always be here for you as you were when my dad passed. Something that makes me feel better when I do think about it is this quote. I hope it gives you a little bit of comfort! Death does not separate us from each other; it only makes us invisible!! I love all of you and you are in my thoughts!! I loved him like my own dad!!!
