Mr Vincent (chick) Laughter Your spirit (saved me more than once from the big bad and ugly in life --Friends will miss you forever God children
God's will be done
Please accept my condolences for your loss. I will forever be grateful that we became friends, at first through the advertising business and then through our love of aviation. I remember our trips in Chicks Bonanza and the day he told me to get in the left seat. That was an expression of confidence in his low-time friend and a sign of courage. Chick was a natural instructor and enjoyed every minute of teaching me the tricks of the professional pilots trade. He had a wicked sense of humor and knew how to enjoy life to the fullest. My great regret is I never got to visit you in Florida. May he rest in peace. Bob
Rest in peace
We have lost a good friend, but we have wonderful memories of you
