A part of you will always live within me for eternity as you are my Big Brother. I have so many memories of our life growing up in our big family. There are so many memories we can share but none can tell what an influence you were to me. I play guitar to this day because of you and the my childhood filled with such great music and watching you play in your band so long ago. Having fun with you and Dave Datkun on the bowling league together. All the fishing trips on Uncle Joeys Boat the COTTON E. Driving with you as a tag along with your girlfriend in the 64 Wildcat Convertible when I was a child. Time on Orchid Beach in the Bronx with Mommy and the family. And our conversations on the phone just talking about life. I miss you already Life will be different without you. We were blessed to be with you these last couple of days and be able to tell you we Love you. The Lord has you now in his arms. May the Lord give comfort as you are reunited with all those who have gone before us. I will say goodbye for now, but I will see you again one glorious day. Rest in Pease my Brother Vinny.
