Twila, I didn’t know your dad, but I know he raised an amazing daughter. It was so nice to see people from your Madison family at the funeral. I hope it lets you know that his kindness is being passed on.

My prayers and sympathy at the death of Vince. I met him at the Howard Long Wellness Center years ago. He was always a joy and had a kind word for everybody. My most vivid memory is his giving Life Savers to everybody every morning at the gym. We called him our “Candy Man”.
May Jesus bless you with peace and hope as you mourn his loss.
