Vinnie was one of the most generous and kind men we have ever known. He would do anything for a friend and everything for his family. He had a wicked sense of humor, sometimes quiet, sometimes ironic, sometimes whimsical...but always hilarious.

The Driscoll family has been an important part of our lives, but none so much as in the life of our daughter, Helena. She has already posted her words of love in her own words.

There is nothing as precious and pure as love through the eyes of a child. That child is our daughter. Helena loved Vinnie deeper than we knew until this very sad day. Vinnie was her 2nd Dad, always there when she needed him. Her sense of loss is profound.

From all of us -- David, Sandy, and Helena: We love you Vinnie. You will always be in our hearts.

This past week has been incredibly hard for me one thing after another it seems. I have such an empty hole in my heart that will never fill again. I am so lost for words and can’t even describe the pain and sadness that has overcome me.

Just because a person is not blood does not mean they are not your family. He was the the nicest loving giving man besides my father. I knew him ever since I could remember since he was my dads best friend.

I just keeping thinking back to when I was younger the better days and just don’t know where the time went.

Life is unpredictable. Make sure you make time for those you love and cherish the moments.

One day you may not be able to 💔

I love you uncle vinnie 💚
