    Vince was one of my buddies in High School, and I truly loved him. He was so fun to be with, had a great laugh, and we loved when Vince came to our home. He and my sister Pam went to Junior Prom, and we just had so many fond memories! I’m shocked and so saddened, thinking about how we talked on July 20th, and planned a lunch get together in August. It truly shows the importance of living in the present, life is a gift and tomorrow is uncertain. Thinking of Vince’s family and miss you already.

  • Lisa Grenier and Phil Gordon Posted August 10, 2018 2:34 PM

    Our son is close to Gracie and, though we did not know Vince personally, we were very saddened to hear about his passing. Our deepest sympathy to the whole family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
