"My Dearest Uncle Vance. Father figure. Provider. Friend. Sharing soul. Sweet soul. Passionate person. Fighter. Man with few words. Thinker. Dreamer.  
There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I miss hearing your voice and big hugs! I will always be grateful for what you've done for me. Even till the end you fought for life. What you've left behind will always be a true testament to your life. I will always be thankful to what you've taught me and inspired me, and will continue to hold it close to my heart. Thank you for filling me with your love and embrace. Thank you for fighting for me, for that I will always be grateful. I know you will continue looking out for me and ours, and I find much comfort in that. Enjoy your time with loved ones that we will also one day be fortunate to see again one day. The minutes until we meet again will feel like an eternity to all those left behind but we find comfort in knowing for you it will feel as if no time has past. Give my love to everyone on the other side. Again thank you. I'm so grateful for you. I love you. I miss you."

"Vance lived his life true to his beliefs that you should treat others the way you'd want to be treated. That takes away alot of clutter in this life and is pretty straight forward according to God's law of loving one another.  Vance was an exceptional man and didn't have a mean bone in his body as anyone who knew him could tell you. He will be missed by all who knew him."
