We hold the spirit of our friend in our hearts.
We feel the warmth of his friendship in our hands.
We  hear the beauty of his life in every whisper of the wind.
The Prince waits for his Colonel.
The coffee is ready.
Bill is restless.
Comfort will come with time which is truly our friend.
Hugs and kisses.

Reading the first paragraph, is the MOST SPECIAL - his words  of admiration for his family, and knowing the admiration he had for our country - what a legacy!  That is hard to top!  From the stories of “younger years”, (Gina & Cary), I didn’t get to meet the “Colonel” that you guys knew, I just met the smiling, bright eyed man who was funny and friendly!! Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you!!

I feel such pride in having known "Doc"...a true hero!   Back when we're in high school who thinks that someday someone will become a hero, so well-educated, so versatile?  I'm sorry that Vinnie couldn't attend our 60th reunion but I know he will be honored there.  I am honored to have known him.

With this message I represent the Rutherford, New Jersey High School Class of 1958.  We are among the most fortunate of Vince's friends in that many of us grew up with him from the age of 4, and all of us had the privilege of being with him through four years of high school and through eleven reunions -- one every five years since.  Vince stands out for us as one of our most colorful members, without question the most entertaining, a leader who helped to dissolve social boundaries of the sort that draw soft dividing lines among high schoolers.  As one of our most beloved members, Vince's passing leaves a hole in our hearts.  He made us laugh, he helped us love, he made us very, very proud. As I've told Camille, he will be with us forever -- we cannot let him go (either).

Dear Camille,
Yours and Vinnie's lives epitomize what is a genuine, true American love story:  love for one another; love of family; and, love of country.  Vinnie's upbeat, positive outlook to life and his sense of self-deprecating humor were inspirational character attributes.  What a guy!

Dave & Linda Goodhart, RHS Class of '58

Dear Camille and Family,

I feel blessed to have known Vinny. He made me laugh, he honored me for  what he thought were my accomplishments and he truly cared for each individual he encountered in his lifetime. This accomplished gentleman never had an egocentric thought about himself.  He always gave his gift of caring and interest in others with his whole heart.  There was an aura of warmth in  Vinny's persona.  It simply radiated from his personality.  His Rutherford High School classmates, of which I am one, will so miss his presence among us, but his spirit will always remain with us.
God bless you Camille and your lovely family.
Sincerely and with loving thoughts,
Lee Frances Brown

I am very sorry to hear of Vince’s passing.  I read it in the VHPA Aviator magazine.  I was a pilot in the same Helicopter Gunship Platoon as Vince in 1967.  He got to Vietnam about 7 months before me.  I flew my first combat mission with him when he earned one of those Air Medals with “V”.  I flew with him quite a bit my first few months.  I also ran into him frequently at Ft. Wolters, TX after that VN tour.  I have nothing but great memories of Vince.  Jean and I send our sincere sympathy.
