Not sure what to say?

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Vine. Inez and I have been friends since the sixties. She spoke fondly of the times shared with her brother. Your family has my deepest sympathy. May your joyful memories give you consolation and peace.

I am much delighted to light this candle, for I will always remember Mr Vines as a beacon of light in our community. He and his wife encouraged me when I was a kid selling items for school. Their house was my first stop. I always enjoyed sitting in his office talking to him. My family, as many families, has called on his services in times of unfortunate deaths, and so, we celebrate his life and death. We are told to be absent from the body is to be present with The Lord.

Our sincere prayers to the Vines family, I had the pleasure of meeting my cousin Mr. Julius Vines when i came to Oasis Baptist Church for my last uncle's funeral in 2004 Fred Vines as well as my Aunt Gloria Vines-Todd 2006. Thank you for all your help with our family arrangements.

My sincerest sympathy to the family. May his memories remain in your hearts forever.

Julius was a wonderful person with a loving heart. He will be missed but not forgotten.

Your father was very important to our LaFayette community. He was also very instrumental in taking care of my family on my father's side (Edward Freeman)when it came to be a good neighber and taking care of final affairs. It is with heartfelt sympathy that I send you this message. May God continue to keep you strong during these times.

Julius Vines..a household name throughout all homes in the Camp Hill, Ala. area. For a very long time I thought he "buried" everybody that passed away, because he was all that was there for us, To this day, I have a 1953 calendar with my picture on it, hanging on my wall,advertising Vines Funeral Home.I can still see him, and my parents drinking coffee and sitting at our kitchen table talking.I visited him a couple years ago when I was home. He was a compationate,caring and kind...

Uncle Sommers was just so much fun to be
with and,as it turned out, I always learned
something from him; he was a VERY wise man
who was also quite warm, giving, and generous. I really liked just being in his
presence & riding around LaFayette listening to him talk w/ people. I'll always remember this. Uncle Sommers was just a great guy & his passing has been
extremely difficult for me. TO Merilyn and
Angela: I give you my sincerest, deepest and

Our prayers are with you. Mr. Vines will be dearly missed. He was always there in our family time of needs. Merilyn & Angela, you have our deepest sympathy.
