Raffaele and family. No words can describe the loss of a loving father. Always remember the happy and loving moments you all shared with him, they will live on forever in your hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Raffaele: I only knew your father by sight – when I accompanied my wife, also a resident of Cummer Lodge, on walks through the third-floor hallways and past his room. His door was invariably open and what I think I saw on his face when I peeked in as I went by, was a man of grit, a gamer, a guy eager to squeeze all he could from life. He clearly had a stout, fighting heart. Given his age, he had a good run, I suppose, and – given what you told me about his life in a brief conversation one day at Cummer Lodge when we were both visiting – deserved every blessed one of his 95 years. I’m sorry for your loss. He was a man.
Ralf our deepest condolence once again, glad we were able to see you on Monday to share in your loss, both our fathers are now gone , yours was taken gracefully , We will always remember Vincenzo as a kind and caring family man. I’m so glad to hear how you in the last 3 years took so much time and effort to take care of your dad
Dear Frank, Sandra, Marco & Vince,
Our sincere condolences to you and your entire family. “A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven”.
I hope it comforts you to know that your grief is shared by all of us who knew your dad. He was a wonderful man and he will be missed.
God has now a precious and loving friend, the one we have lost.
We shared good times with your father, he was a great man…
Our sincere condolences to you and your entire family.
We are deeply saddened by your loss, our hearts go out to you and your loved ones and may our prayers guide his soul to our Heavenly Father.
To have known a man of honour, one good man, like Vincenzo, who throughout his life carried his heart in his hands and offered it to many in countless ways was a blessing. The most beautiful person in the room is always the one with the kindest heart and that aptly describes him as well. His passing will leave a void, leaving one less true gentleman in the world. Rest In Peace dear sweet Vincenzo. My thoughts and prayers are with you Raffaele and your family.
Se trovi una persona speciale, abbine cura e falla sentire importante. Ponila davanti al tutto e non lasciarla andare via, son poche, son preziose perle e uniche gemme che credono ancora nell’amore vero. Basta colmare d’immensa gioia l’animo suo anche un piccolo gesto. Non fidarti mai di chi a parole cerca di entrare nel tuo cuore, sono i fatti e il rispetto che fa la sola differenza! La morte lascia un dolore che nessuno può colmare ma l’amore lascia un ricordo che nessuno può rubare! Mi manchi.Ti porterò per sempre nel mio cuore.
Raffaele I know how much you loved your father and I am deeply saddened by his passing. My sincerest condolences to you and your family during this difficult time. May you find peace in your beautiful memories of him. Stay strong and please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Ci mancherai Vincenzo. Tu eri un amico speciale di mio suocero Alfredo, iniziando una nuova vita in Canada insieme. Prego che ti ricongiungerai con coloro che ami in paradiso. Tu e la tua bellissima moglie Sara avete fatto una nuova vita qui e sono stati benedetti con due meravigliosi figli, Raffaelle e Francesco. Avrò sempre dei bei ricordi su di voi. Le mie preghiere e le mie condoglianze alla famiglia.

Raffaele I know how much you loved your father you will always be a great son ,and I am deeply saddened by his passing. My sincerest condolences to you and your family during this difficult time. May you find peace in your beautiful memories of your dad.
Una persona non muore subito per noi, ma resta immersa in una specie di aurea di vita che nulla è di reale immortalità, ma fa che essa continui a occupare i nostri pensieri, proprio come quando era in vita.
❤️ Vincenzo sarai sempre nei nostri cuori. ❤️
Thinking of you, wishing you hope in the midst of sorrow, comfort in the midst of pain. No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that your Dad is now resting in the arms of our Lord. When we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that you have an angel watching over you. Cherish your memories. I am always there for you. My deepest and heartfelt sympathy go out to you and your family.
Those we love never truly leave us. There are things that death cannot touch like love we gave our family, all the good things we did and memories we left our dear ones. We will never forget zio Vincenzo and we hope to see him again, one day. Our condolences and our love to everyone.
A big hug from all of us.
My deepest sympathy for the loss of your father.
He is in a joyful peace now.
Please accept my sincere sympathy on the loss of your father.
Ralph, I want to send you my deepest sympathy on the passing of your father. I don’t know if you remember me, but you were such a comfort after the passing of my sister. I was going through old pictures and came across some from the cruise I took with my daughter. I have often thought of you but we lost contact. Hope you’re doing well. Take care of yourself and know that you were such a source of comfort during my dark time.
