I am so sad to hear about the passing of Vince Mecca. Not only a cousin, he was a wonderful neighbor up on the hill. I always enjoyed talking to him since I was a child. Reunited with Carm, I hope you both always enjoy the beauty of eternal life with God, Our Father, in Heaven.

I am so sorry to hear of Vince's passing. He was a friend of my father's, Angelo Martellaro. He always asked how I was doing, and if I needed anything.
