So sorry to see my wonderful Uncle Vince has passed. All of my father's brothers were true gentlemen and Uncle Vince truly was. Kind- hearted and sweet and one heck of a dancer--he moved on air--I loved dancing with him and was lucky enough to be able to do so with Aunt Mary's okay. Uncle Vince looked so much like my Dad (Edward) and I would catch myself staring at him and then apologize for doing so. He said it was okay because he was so good-looking. He was a true family man and will be missed especially by Aunt Mary, David, Jim and the "grands". Rest in Peace Uncle Vichu (sp?) and now you can dance with the angels. Love you, Patti
