I wish to offer my condolences to the entire family. I met Mr. Vinson when i worked at Walmart, in the book department. He loved his westerns. I enjoyed helping him find one he had not read before. His kindness and his obvious love for his family made him a joy to talk to. I truly missed our conversations after i retired. His devotion to his wife always shined through in our talks. What a blessed family you are to have had him as a Father and Grandfather.! God has welcomed him home to join his lovely wife. I will keep you in my Prayers . God Bless you all. I feel honored to have met him and had a chance to listen to his many stories of you all. He certainly touched my heart.
