I was Vince’s neighbor for many years and he was such a wonderful man. He always kept a beautiful yard and always offered much fruit ha had grown. I was a young man, often away serving my country and never knew he was a veteran himself. I have to admire his humbleness about what he had been through and respect in the highest level, his service to his country, and am thankful to have known him. God bless him and his family, and comfort them in their time of loss.
