Kristina and Kevin RichardsonOur heartfelt condolences to you Francesca, Nicholas, Michael and family. We think of you often as our former neighbours on Meadowridge and were shocked to learn of Vince’s passing. I (Kristina) had the pleasure of chatting and catching up with Vince a few times in the last couple of years when we bumped into each other at Remark. Vince always had a friendly smile and a genuine care when asking about our family but he really glowed when he spoke of all of you. He was very proud of his boys! Thinking of you at this difficult time.
Frank and Joanne SpadaDear Francesca and family, we are so sorry for your loss. Vince was always so kind and pleasant when we would meet. We will never forget how special he was. Please accept our condolences.
