The first thought that comes to my mind when I think of Vincent is his quiet .. fun and loving nature... and then ...
"watermelons" .. me getting into his watermelon patch.. Vincent seeing me in there and chasing me down the road.. but always after catching me .. we would walk back up to the house and he would share the watermelon with me ... and then theres the way he would sneak around and scare Faye, Kaye & I... so many precious memories! I treasure all those memories I have of him and all of our times in
"Heck Holler"... all of
my summers there with all of this loving and beautiful family. I would not trade all those days and memories for anything in this world! I am so blessed and thankful I was a part of it!
My heart goes out to all the family. Please know that you are thought of.. loved and in our prayers always. God bless you all and know we are here for you always.
