Thank you for the update, Your whole fmily ia never far from our thoughts and prayers. Although we never knew Vinny personally he has become an insspiration for us as has your whole family. Stay strong. That is what Vinny would have wanted. He didn't want to leave any of you, but God had a plan, which is hard to accept or understand at times but was meant to be. We see all of the good that Vinny has done before his death and after. Stay proud. He was and continues be an amazing little boy!  Love and hugs from Barrie Ontario Canada

Dear Sarah and Family-thank you for sharing your hearts on this 2 nd "Birthday" of Vinny's earning his wings.  I miss him, because, through the gift of your incredible and generous journalings, I got to "know" him and what an amazing, bright, funny, witty, loving, spiritual, brave, sweet boy he was.  The world has a Vinny-sized hole in it, and we were truly priviledged to share his journey with you.  I'll hold you in prayer, and those you have requested, also.

Dear Sarah,

I continue to be amazed at your posts.  I don't know how you find the time with all that you do but I really do appreciate it and enjoy reading them although most of the time I end up with tears in my eyes.  I miss Vinny and Ben.  I just doesn't seem to get any easier.   I wanted to tell you Vinny has been "dropping" by and visiting me a lot lately, I find bird poop on the side of my car, on the side window on the driver's side, and just in the last day or so right smack dab in my line of vision on the driver's side.  I just look toward the Heavens and laugh and say,"Thanks for stopping by for a visit Vinny.  Tell Ben I said hello".  I guess my neighbors, if they see me by the car, think I've lost my last marble.  Oh well...

I think of you all often and you are in my prayers.

Love and prayers

Dear Sarah,

You continue to be in my daily thoughts.  Just read your last entry and, as always, it's bittersweet.  I continue to amaze me with your strength and the work you continue to do through your foundation.
Best wishes for a peaceful Holiday season.

I miss your precious Vinny. We have never met, I found Vinny years ago through Jordan Wilson's site.  Jordan graduated from UNCG this past week and has a new nephew, Mikey III who is absoluetly adorable.  I've followed V for quite a while, It is funny how it feels like I knew your sweet boy although we never met.

 I just wanted to leave a note to say that my Christmas wish for you is to find peace. I can not imagine the void your sweet boy leaves. My own three children range in age from 4-11 so they represent the years your precious boy fought so bravely.  He was such a little warrior and I pray that you, Charlie, and Desi to have a Christmas that allows you to smile more than you cry.  Prayers for you this season and always, Angel

I hope that you and your family are doing well.  I thank about ya'll and Vinny often and how life must be for ya'll now, but oh the wonderful memories that you hold in your heart. Vinny was alwyas such a happy and up-lifting young man.  I hope that he and our Steven have become good friends since they are together now.  Our Steven also had ventricular septal defect and other heart defects as well, but there are no more heart problems for them now.  Take care and ya'll are forever in our prayers.  The ELzey Family
