Julie, Tony and the entire Lamartina-Dinko family,

My thoughts are with you on the passing of your Dad, "Mr. Vince". While saddened, try to remember all the good he brought into your lives for so many years as you move forward.
My sympathy to all of you.

Vince was great cousin and friend. Going down the shore was so great. Vince and Tony always liked my pasta. Vince was the first one to greet you. He would say where is my pasta and breaded meat. I also liked going to the club we had so much fun. We will miss you Vince. Your cousin Rose.

Although we were separated by a lot of miles, I always felt close to my Uncle Raw and tried to see him whenever I got to the Baltimore area to see my sister Cathy and her family. He always greeted me and my wife Beth with a big grin – at least I think the grin was for us because he was always smiling. I will always appreciate the support he provided to my Mom, Zella, and my sister when they were on their own in Baltimore many years ago. He was always full of life and one of the hardest workers I ever knew. Even though he sacrificed greatly for his country in WWII I never heard him complain or act like he was limited in any way. In my eyes he was a true hero, which is a term too loosely used in this day and time. To Tony and Julie and their extended families I extend my deepest sympathies. What I will remember most is his heart and contiguous happiness. I miss you Uncle Raw.

We met him as friends and associates of his loving daughter, Julie. Immediately we fell in love with him. His energy and kindness and acceptance was so evident it was almost tactile. He will be truly missed and always loved .... until we meet again, Vince.

Remembering all the good childhood times, you always made my mom and I feel like family. Your mom and dad provided much needed love and support. Much of my life was about trying to measure up to the values they taught us. We had many fun times at the shore and the best crabs I have ever had. Rest in peace Uncle Raw. So sorry for your loss.
