Dear Wanda and family, though years have separated us, you and Vic have been a part of my life for YEARS. Knowing you since we were children because of being cousins and Vic because of being neighbors right over there where you and Vic made your home together! My prayers go out to all of you for strength in this difficult time. Rest assured that Vic is surely in Heaven riding his Harley of gold with a smile on his face! And...there are no bugs in Heaven! Peace be with you cousin.
