I am so sorry to hear of Vin’s death! In high school, I called him “Bubba” and he called me “Sis.” It was a very special friendship and one I will always cherish! If we both were without dates on Friday night, we hung out together! I enjoyed a “catch-up” lunch with Vin about a year ago, and he was so excited to share pictures of his beautiful children and how much he loved them! He was a very proud Dad! Love you, Vin!
