Memories Timeline


  1. Vinny was a great friend. We shared many memorable times together, especially on South Street in Fort Lee. I lived a few houses away and Vinny would come over and we would hang out until his mom called him in for dinner. He taught me to play chess! In our high school years, we shared many less tame escapades than chess, lol. He loved his family above all else. He was smart, funny, polite and a loyal friend for the past 50 plus years. I will always remember Vinny's beautiful smile, smart wit, and loving heart. Rest in peace dear friend.

  2. Rest in peace Vinny. I can't think of growing up in Fort Lee without seeing your smiling face in that picture. Thanks for all the good times and great memories. You will be missed old friend. See you on the other side.

  3. Please accept my deepest condolences. The following words have helped many to cope with the loss of someone special. 1 Corinthians 1: 3, 4 states "Praise be the God and Father or our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials…"

    Our Father, Jehovah God, will help your family and friends cope with such a difficult loss. In 1 Corinthians 15:26 he promises us that "the last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing." I hope the family and friends can find some comfort in this promise.
