Grandpa, I met you 24 years ago and married your grandson (Adam) shortly after, you welcomed me into your family with open arms, I had had 2 daughters (Kaitlynn & Kelsee) before meeting your grandson, you loved my girls with all of your heart and never treated them any different!! We then had Kerstin, you and Gram just adored her!! This past year was a difficult one for Adam and I and you never once thought any different of me and made sure I knew how much you loved me, we now have twin girls (Allyana & Angelina), you made me promise to always take care of them and that is exactly what I intend to do!! I miss you so much already grandpa and I will always love you!! I know you are up there with your chicky having martinis and reminiscing about your amazing life!! I love you so much!!

I 1st met this wonderful man over 23 years ago when my daughter Danielle married his only Grandson (Adam)! I remember his 1st comment he made to me when we met. "Well hello, I can see where Danielle gets her looks from". Such a kind, loving, and welcoming man. Even though Vinnie and his wife (Connie) only had one child together (Gary), he built a large family full of love, each and everyone of them just as accepting and loving as he was. And when it came to stories, he was the best at telling them, as he always loved an audience!!

You will be missed by your loved ones, Vinnie!

I've always known that there were two kinds of Italian men - the stereotypical, macho type, and the lovers - the sweet, kind, patient, thoughtful, loyal ones who know how to treat women, and who love their children deeply. I was so lucky to have had a father and two uncles who were the best examples for our family, and who always were respected and loved deeply in return. Thank you, Uncle Vinnie for being one of the heroes. It's a sad world without you in it. Love you and miss you!
