  1. I am so sorry for your loss of Vincent. I grieve as well, but know that your loss is much deeper. Vincent told me how much he had loved going to British Columbia and Alaska , and the photograph of him here is so fitting. I remember so fondly Vincent’s description of how to get to where Bob and I lived: “Take the smallest road you can find and then when you get to a junction take an even smaller road and then at the next junction take an even smaller road until the road ends.” Yet, we both loved the wild places up north where there were no roads! So many memories, but this image of Vincent is just wonderful and will remain in my heart. Leslie Gecy

  2. i just looked up Vincent on line. Vincent accompanied me to my Senior Prom (Bishop McDonnell Memorial H.S. Brooklyn, NY) in . June of 1962 – we were childhood friends from the neighborhood in Woodhaven, NY (Queens County). So Sorry to learn of his passing. Rest in Peace.
