This was a most unexpected and tragic fate. I knew V.J. when he was a teenager (even a little before and after that), and he was always kind, considerate and loving. The grief felt by your family must be enormous and deep. God be with all of you at this most painful time.

To the family of Mr. & Mrs. V. Leggio of whom I didn't know I just had to post a few encouraging words to lovely family. As I read the "Guest Book" I can tell that these were two very well respected, friendly, kind and loving people. To the family, my prayers are with you and yours and with God in your lives you will be able to get thru this, and if you need to cry, let it out and continue to be there for each other as your parents would have honored. May they continue to R.I.P.!!!!

VJ, to say that knowing you for so many years was a pleasure is putting it mildly.
Those days of riding with you and Mike in that '56 Ford to and from high school, and the good times in the party room on Duval are etched in my memory forever. I didn't get to see you as often as I liked, but when we saw each other you always had that SE grin on your face. I guess it's true that God only takes the best, and you and Debbie were two of the best. RIP my dear friend. We will miss you both.

We've lived down the street from your parents for almost 20 years. One of my fondest memories of your dad, is one day he was outside playing basketball with his grandson, and his granddaughter that was dressed up as a princess. The look in his eyes when introducing the kids was sheer love and adoration for those kiddos. You were blessed to have a great dad and grandpa. Praying for you during this difficult time.

When my husband, Bill saw & talked with VJ on last wednesday, he certainly had no idea that, that would be the last time he'd see his friend. Billy is so grateful that he & VJ had a nice, long visit in his office that day. They talked about family stuff... what a happy, admirable way to remember such a respectful, outstanding friend. I myself will absolutely miss the VJ fishin stories! Peace & strength to VJ & Debbie's beautiful family.~ bill, sandi, holly & matt platt
