To Vince’s children. Your dad was an amazing person. Such a gentle giant, caring and loving thoughtful and loved you and his grandkids to the moon and back I know he will be missed !!!!!! To Elaine. Our heart breaks knowing how much your love ❤️ for Vince. Was part of your life. And I know Vince loved you beyond words. I remember the first time I met you all Vince could talk about was someone named Elaine then we met face to face. And all I could think of was Vince met his match. Wow wow wow. You two were perfect for each other. I never saw Vince so happy. We will miss Vince so much. All the talks and laughter. We will cherish all those memories
