I am so sorry to hear of the passing of such a kind man. I rode my motorcycle to the ABC store for someone and Mr. Vince was working that evening. He said you are alright with me. That is a nice bike you got there young lady. We shared a long conversation about motorcycles and it was just a blessing whenever I encountered him and he would ask are you on your bike today and I would tell no not today. I really appreciated his at of kindness and his conversation. He will truly be missed but never forgotten. Rest on dear friend your work here is done but it will never be forgotten...God Bless your family and I pray that God will fill the void.

To my cousin, he was the best. Haven't seen him in a while. everytime we got together it was always laughter. He was his daddy son. He was just like uncle JW always joking around. To his wife and children know that he love you all and loved God because aunt Sarah Ann made sure of that. He's home now with mother father and all his brothers and sisters that went home early. God has given and now he has call him home to look over his love ones that's left behind. Keep the faith and know there is no sorrow that God cannot heal.

As a Dunn High School classmate, I found Vince to be a very sweet and caring person. He always carried that bright beautiful smile and always very kind. He didn't say much, but when he did, it was strength and encouraging. Another classmate gone, but memories will forever last. Rest in peace. Love to you and your family.

Vince, words can not describe how loved you were by everyone who knew you. I will never forget when I ask you about me getting married 👰. You told me to go for it... and that I had a good man. I ask you to set my wedding date. Love and behold you did. We got married on Nov 12, 2017. You are going to be missed so much. The joy you brought to everyone can never be replaced. Rest In Peace Vince. 🙏🏻
