    This amazing video had me crying from the start. You are amazing parents, and although I just recently met you, I want you to know that little Vincent has had a huge impact on my heart. I loved the whole tribute, my favorite part being when Vincent just wanted to hug his brother. Having this will remind him of the tremendous love that Vinnie had for his brother. May God Bless your family always…

  • Jana Bourdo

    These pictures were so beautiful. Thank you for sharing them with us. I’m sitting here bawling like a baby. Praying the Lord would comfort you in this moment.

  • Helen Barron

    Awesome. I am so grateful that you have this video and that you shared it.

    Yes, Vincent is safe. And, yes, you will continue to build your lives. The gift of faith that has carried you this far radiates beyond you in waves you cannot know. And so it will continue to hold you.

  • He’s a beautiful boy!

  • Mom

    Thanks for making the video so accessible to all of us. I enjoyed watching it again, even though I am crying my eyes out. Vinnie was truly a champeen boy and brought so much sunshine to us all. I miss my baby boy.

  • Lisa

    Thanks for sharing this video with us. I too was crying from the beginning. He truly was a gift to all of us even though some of us never got to meet him we inspired us all. Love to you guys!

  • He’s so beautiful and watching this makes me so happy to see him again. He’s so beautiful and watching this makes me feel like something just crushed my chest and pulverized my heart. I miss him completely. I’m so glad he knew how much he was loved. He was one blessed little baby boy and we were certainly blessed to have had him for those 18 special months. And he still is ours forever.

    Thank you for sharing this. I’m still trying to see clearly through tears of sadness, grief and joy at the amazingly happy life little Vincent lived clear to the end. What a gift he was to all who encountered him- you can see that on the smiles he brought to every face and how often he smiled himself. He was a special boy and I wish I could have met him. You, Becca & Theo are in our thoughts and prayers.

  • Cheryl

    Thanks for posting this, Dan. I can’t believe it’s been a whole month. Feels like way longer and way shorter at the same time. We love you guys and are praying for you this Christmas. xoxoxo

  • Thanks everyone for your comments. The journey through grief is an unpredictable voyage, but the ship is more stable with many hands on deck.
