From: Edward Finocchiaro Nov 27 2018 10:28AM Ned, I am so sorry for your loss. Spend lots of time remembering the good things, the funny things and the awesome things, and you will laugh way more than you cry. May he Rest In Peace and may perpetual light shine upon him. From: Ann Krieger Nov 27 2018 2:22PM To all the Vinsons, we are grieved by the loss you are suffering. Edwin is a friend of long standing and always loved. Take care of yourselves and each other. Our prayers are all yours. Love, Ann and John From: Robin Kinzer West Nov 29 2018 12:12PM To all of the Vinson Family, I send my sincere condolences to all of you. I will always remember riding to Cape May with Edwin at the the wheel and blasting his marching band tape over the car stereo as Cherry, Jamie, Blair, baby Ned and I were groaning. These are the fun memories that sustain us in times of loss. Thank you for including me in your memory making events! Hugs, Robin
