Vincent when you were born i was so proud and happy to be your Tio,and as time passed I became your Chump;which made me even happier. You have changed my life forever and have touched and made a space in my heart that will forever love you and miss. I always will think of you,feel you with me and speak of ;I will never forget you and always I wonder who you'd be today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY CHUMP"
"My big baby boy Vint ...28 at 1:28 pm. Falls on a Sunday, no doubt in my heart that you would of been here for dinner with your amazing family that god had planned for you. I can not begin to describe what your sisters, brother and daddy-o are feeling, I can only feel for myself as tears stream down my face, and I feel so alone and ache for my first born son. You were a gift from god , you were never a mistake! but destined to change many lives.Those
you knew and those who needed love and true strength . Days and nights are often unbearable, but knowing we will be in heaven together gives me the strength to keep living.I LOVE YOU MY SON MY VINCENT MICHAEL"
"Hey Vincent missing and feeling you in my heart everyday. Always thinking about you and wondering what your life and mine would be like if you hadn't been called up to heaven. I often pray for you ,that you are at peace; and pray for you as my guardian angel to give me strength when times are hard for me. I miss hearing you laugh and calling me your CHUMP. Your mom and I talk about you often,about how much we love and miss you. I close my eyes and see your face and hear your voice and it makes me happy. I truly believe I will see you again my dear nephew. LOVE YOUR CHUMP"
"Hey Vince. What's up bro how have you been?
I think about you all the time. I miss you dude. You were always someone I could talk to about absolutely nothing and then suddenly something important and you never judged me. Its so much easier talking to you in California then over this. But I miss you bro. I'll be in Cali soon too hang out with you I'll bring you a beer and a ton of stories and I'll make the rest of the guys come too even tho I won't have to make them. Keep watching over us fam. I love and miss you always bro."
"Always on my mind regardless of where I am. How can it be that only the good get taken first and we are left to go on without you. I know you are watching over me n your papa, xena n tinker and lucky dogs cause they can see you when you are in the house they even wag their tails when they pass by your pictures. I always know you are with me when I go shopping cause some times I turn and I see you sneaking out of the clothes rack to scare me like you used to. I love you and carry you always in my heart and mind. Until we meet again please take care of your mom, dad, sisters, brother, your chump and your papa. PS I miss our wrestling times. Love you always and forever Nana"
"7 years ago and I struggle every day.... Still no answers, more heartache, and I miss you more and more. So many memories left un created.
I love you my big baby boy.
Forever n Always

Mom,Dad,Peanut and your Purty Girl jelly Bean"
"Happy heavenly birthday mijo. Today Grandpa and I were remembering how you were never shy or afraid to come up and give us a hug and kiss where every we were and how when I was shopping you would always pop up from behind the cloths rack and scare me and after wards you would give me a hug. Although you are not physically here I still feel you with me always. I believe that we all carry you with us daily and I know you watch over us all the time, love n miss you, nana"
"Hey Chump, just wanted to say I miss you and always think of you and will forever carry you in my heart"
This is Tia Terri here, What I remember they most is one Thanksgiving day at your Grandpa & Nana house on Germain we were going around giving thanks You made me cry cause you gave me thanks for being there for all you & taking care of you all (you were about 7).Those words have always stayed in my heart & on Thanksgiving I bow m y head & think of you & Thank you for being part of my life along with your Mom & Sisters.
I miss your big smile keep on smiling Mijo
Love your Tia Terri R.I.P."
"Mom and I talk about you all the time. I miss your big heart and gorgeous smile. Love to you and my angel. I hope that you are taking care of him :)"
"Hey,chump I can't believe it's been 6 years. I miss you so much I always think about you. when I think about you it hurts but at the same time brings a smile to my face. It reminds me of all the goofy things you would do and how much you made me laugh and how much love you had for me. I miss not hearing you call me tio Chump. VINCENT you will forever be a part of me and I will never forget you. I always wonder who you would be today."
"Mijo while you are not physically here for me to get my bear hug. I somehow feel them. A lot has happened since you left us to be with the Lord, as you well know your sisters are now mothers and your younger sister and brother are growing too fast. Your mom n dad are doing a good job with them. Your mom struggles every day to put on a happy face but she will always have a part of her heart missing. Your chump and grandpa visit your site just about every day. I'm sure grandpa reads you the newspaper every day. Yes we are broken hearted that we can't see you everyday but you still live in my heart and always will till hopefully we will be together again. Please continue to watch over us and protect us all. I love you my Hubba-Bubba nana marcie"
"Almost 6 years and I miss you more and more."

"To my chump not a day goes by that I don't talk to you or speak about you god only knows how much I miss you. I often wonder what you would be doing or how your life would be today.

Your sisters are both moms now and you would of been such sn awesome Tio Bubba ! Peanut and Jellybean miss their big brother soooo much , it is hard to fight back my tears when they ask why??? Dad tries to be strong for all of us but you know real men cry. And I with the Grace of God function morning til night when I pray you and your lil mama's will visit me as I try to rest.
Still no justice , your murderer continues to live free raising his boys! Lord only knows why. I pray for answers , pray for Justice, I pray that he to lives the hell he created for your family!!!

"My dear mijo Vincent, as you well know I don't go to the cemetery to visit you because I know that you are not there and I don't like the fact that you are in the dark and cold which you never liked.

"One summer morning I felt impressed to knock on a strangers door. A beautiful woman with 5 kids greeted me with a smile. Seven years ago I gained a best friend! She had this very outspoken loving son who quickly became a fixture at my kitchen table. He loved to chat and poke fun of me! I love and miss you Vincent! Until we meet again.."I'll tell you what!" ;-)"
"My first grand child who was and still is my heart beat. It is because of him that I keep going everyday. He was my hubba-bubba who used to wrestle with me and always let me win. He really knew the spirt of giving Love and always helping others. Such a beautiful soul and heart that I miss everyday and yes he is with me always taking care of his nana."
Have a suggestion for us?
