  1. I have a million memories of my Dad. But the last week we shared together when he came to, will be nearest to my heart. These were 3 magical days of sharing memories, laughter and trying to giving back in a small measure the life he gave me, and continues to give me even after his passing.

    Thank you Dad for those and all my many, many memories.
    Your son Vince.

    The moment I met your folks they reminded me of Ron and Nancy Reagan; Larger than life and passionate about everything they did. Over time I found that to be true. Your dad was a kind of a Statesman and your mom is definately a First Lady. I’m very greateful for the small bits of time I’ve spent knowing your dad. He was very inspiring with his courage, strength, kindness, and tenacity that is so evident from the year of his footprints on this earth. You should all be very proud to have his as your guide and role model. His celebration of life surely showed a live well lived and a man well loved. God Bless Him and all of you.
