I remember Vincent and Rose as one of my parents near, dear and enduring friendships. Each taking turns babysitting, constantly at each other’s homes, and other activities, a full experience of life. I was the same age as Nancy, Karen as Tracey and Paul as David. There was as much in common as there were differences to embrace. Yet, none of that mattered. Just two couples raising their families in Fair Lawn, bound by geography, same aged offspring and striving for a meaningful life. To me, Vincent was big and strong, right down to his hands, with a full head of dark wavy hair. A handsome guy. He could do anything with his hands and often helped my dad often when he got in over his head. Vincent put floor tile in our oven to soften it such that it could bend nicely when installing it on stairs. Rounded and seemless, it looked amazing. He took the time to show me how to it was done. Slowly and gently, rubbing, bending, fitting it correctly. Another memory is being in their home during a hurricane. It was scary and a tree uprooted in their front yard. Vincent came home during the storm, watched with wonderment and fascination, going occasionally back outside to move or secure things from further damage (or maybe just for the experience of being outside in a hurricane). I watched from inside as he struggled against the wind, ultimately defeating it. He was a man’s man.

Dear Rose & Family, We are so sorry to hear about your loss. It is very sad to lose someone we love so dearly, we are never ready to let go. But I hope you can take comfort in a lifetime of memories and knowing that there is a big reunion in heaven right now with those who've passed before him. I know Charlotte is at the head of the pack :) Love, Rick & Lynn Cole
