I have many for memories of Vinnie. He treated everyone with kindness and respect. Whenever I was at the house visiting Jen, he would always make sure to welcome me, and he always had a smile. Thinking of all of you during this time. Sending hugs from up north. 😘

Dear Rose, Walter, Jen, and family,
I'm saddened to hear of Vinnie's passing. He was a special neighbor to me, my
dog and my grandson. I have many fond memories of him. He helped me shorten
the height of my Christmas tree years ago. He was kind and patient with my grandson,
showing him the neighbor's fish pond, and coming to watch him play baseball. The
day I couldn't find my dog and Vinnie yelled, "he's here"! The dog ran to the front of
the house and up the steps to the Marotta's front porch. Every morning or night my
dog insisted on walking up to the Marotta's front lawn and just lie there . . . . It pleased
me that Vinnie enjoyed the tiramisu I made for him. Precious memories. Thank you, Vinnie.
Love, Kathy, "Sam", and Sam
