  1. Karin and family, my heart goes out to you during the loss of your dad and grandpa. I know he loved you all and was blessed to have you in his life. Vince was a wonderful man and I am so glad I had the pleasure to meet him during his visits to Seattle over the years. May he rest in peace. Love, Tamara Barrat

  2. Dear Karin and family, We were sorry to hear about your Dad. In 1964 on our wedding trip to California, and in 1981 on a family vacation to the west, we enjoyed visiting with him and your Mom at the Mitchell \’Cousins Party\’ at Ann and Babe\’s house, respectively. With warm regards, a Minnesota cousin. P.S. Marie and Elmore Edmunds are my parents. If you have email, send it to me. I can send you some pictures.
