Aunt Patti and Mark please know you have my deepest sympathy. You and the family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Uncle Vinny was such a special uncle. I know I didn't grow up around him but he was always so special to me. I will always cherish the times when he visited us in Florida, what great memories I have. Rest in peace Uncle Vinny, you will be truly missed.

Joe and I send our deepest condolences to Patty and Mark, at this very difficult time. Vinnie was a wonderful man who will be missed and remembered, fondly, by all who knew him. He was so much more than my father's co-worker - a dear and special friend to our entire family. I'm sure there's a room, somewhere in heaven that will soon be remodeled by Dad and Vinnie.
