Oh, how I loved this man! I am John's high school friend . I was lucky enough to have supper with him now and then and chat. He so loved his family and life itself. Always concerned about everyone but himself. RIP Earl, til we meet again! Xoxo

Vincent was my uncle and we talked on the phone couple times a month. He loved his family very much and talked about them all the time.He loved his trips to Somerst Ky. where he raised. He would ask me if iwould take him there and i did he took me to meet some of his school mates. He remembered wher they all lived and where all of the farms that his drandparents and other members of the family lived. He had me back in places that i thought we would never get out of. The last time we spoke he told me wanted to go back one last time and i said i would take him. He is with family and friends that went on before him. I am so sad to hear of his passing he was a good man and we all loved him.

Such a wonderful, kind, caring man that could treat everyone equally with respect and dignity. My memory of this fine brother in law will last forever.

We spoke several times a month and he always made some sweet reference to his Mother who went home to be with the Lord when he was a very small child. We also spoke about her faith in Jesus Christ which extended to Vincent's life as well. I so hope his Mother 's face is one of the first he saw after seeing Jesus when he entered into that glorious city in Heaven.

I know I will see him again soon but he will be greatly missed until then. No one could have asked for a better brother in law.
