  • Dear Judi and Joe,
    We have been traveling on the west coast since September 12 so we did not hear the news of Vinnie’s passing until today. We are very sorry to know Vinny is gone from the Zagami homestead where we knew Vinnie since we were little kids (not to mention ‘Auntie Vi and Uncle Joe’ neighborhood icons). He was a very cheery soul to meet up with each day at the Y or riding his bike by our house or jogging up the Dike. He worked hard to keep healthy despite his asbestos exposures and managed to do very well for a long time. He really got a kick out of seeing me at the health center and would point to me and say “see that girl, she’s my doctor (nurse practitioner)” and laugh. It really cracked him up that the little kid down the street could help him out with his healthcare! We will really miss his merry greetings along the trail of Shoreside road.
