Mona, Kathy and I wanted to share our condolences with you, Mike and your family. I always respected and liked Vic very much in the years we worked together. I remember him saying that everybody needs some way to tell themselves that the work day was over and to de-stress.....I always remembered that.

Dear Mona, we are so sad to hear of Vic’s passing. Although we lost touch with you guys over the years, both Larry and I have the fondest of memories of our business relationships and our friendship. Vic was one of the kindest people both of us ever knew but also funny and fun to be around. The world was a better place with Vic in it. May God bless Vic and you, and his entire family.

Warmest Regards,
Larry and Deborah Tillman
