It was my absolute pleasure to care for Mr. Vessey! I loved meeting his family and listening to stories about him. I also love seeing the video of the people who were able to share in his life while here on this earth! I will remember his quick wit and jokes as I pray for your families strength during this time. What a joy it was to even meet Mr. Vessey.
Blessings,
Mikal, RN

My Uncle David was the best Uncle Anyone could ever have. I'll miss our happy times together and all the times that Heather and I came down to take you to dinner and all the old stories you would tell us. I remember all the beach trips we took when David and I were
growing up and we would body surf holding onto you with our arms around your neck. All the great family gatherings and outings when the kids were little. These were just a few. We have so many great memories. Both you and Marina will always be missed. You are the last of a generation that cannot be replaced and the last of a generation to look up to. We will miss your laughter and your advice. I love you, Incle David, always.

Ah, m’ cherished SAHS, Class of 1951 Classmate, David, truly treasured you have always been to all of us who have joined you on this Saints-51 journey of life. So many fond memories of our annual reunions with you and your beloved Marina, Class of 1953. We had a nice long reunion run, up to Solvang, down to Palm Springs; one of the most memorable being the one in Big Bear where you and Marina opened your beautiful home to your Saints-51 Classmates for an unforgettable get-together. Always enjoyed your regaling us with the happenings of your precious Kids, Grands, and just recently, your Great-Grands! So proud you were of each and every one. Will miss your iconic play-by-play texts during Dodgers games this season, dear one. Rest In Peace, precious friend.

My grandpa was one of the greatest influences on my life and he loved and supported his family unlike any other. He was my role model, my biggest supporter and my number one fan. From having the best sledding hill backyard in big bear to flying us to Catalina on his little plane just to have lunch, I will cherish every memory I had with him and he will always be our family’s rock.

I could not have had a better Grandpa, he was loving and you knew no matter what he would be there for you. I love the memories he gave me, such as putting me in a cardboard box and pulling me down the hallway super fast! It was such fun. I will cherish all the special moments and education he gave to me.

I had the best dad any girl could ever wish for. He was always there for me mentally and physically. He would come to help me day or night, always putting his family first. I will miss him every day until I see him again. I have comfort knowing he is with my mother and that they are at peace together. I Love You Mon and Dad. Always and forever Shelley
