To Grandpa Vic’s grandchildren:
Certainly all of you already know this: your grandpa Vic was a super nice, kind, gentle, loving, friendly, humble, and fun, fun, fun — and funny — guy.
I am so sorry that he is no longer with you to smile with you, joke with you, laugh with you, grab you, hug you, hold you, and so very deeply love you. I don’t know any of you or what age you are, but I’m sure you miss your grandpa Vic terribly and that you are hurting deeply — right there in the middle of your chest where yours surely touched your grandpa Vic’s many, many times as you grew.
Right now it can’t feel like it’s ever going to be possible, but a broken heart somehow, some way does find a way to heal. It probably won’t heal completely because a part of it will forever be missing now — that special part that your grandpa Vic added to it through his love and his caring for you.
Hold on to your memories of your grandpa Vic. Share him with others. Talk about him. Let anyone and everyone know about your grandpa Vic. Tell them about your times with him. He’s not gone when not forgotten. Remember him to others every chance you get.
I’m 70. I have a grandchild. I’m missing your grandpa Vic, and I’m feeling broken-hearted for you.
Your grandpa Vic was my classmate. He was my big-hearted, big laughing, big guy friend. I won’t say we knew each other well as best buddies or anything like that. We had some classes together. But we didn’t sleep over at each other’s homes. We didn’t go on double dates together. We didn’t ride the same school bus. I just knew him as the nicest, kindest, friendliest, most "fun-loving-est" classmate one could ever have.
Probably my biggest and best memory of your grandpa Vic is from our time together on the high school football team in Hampton. And I do mean BIGGEST! I was a puny 140 pound teenager in the backfield running and passing the ball. I guarantee you I always felt good when the ball was snapped seeing in front of me my BIG teenage lineman teammate — your BIG grandpa Vic! He was literally my guide and my protector. I was certainly glad he was there to land on our opponents and not on me.
Again, my deepest sympathy on the death of your grandpa Vic. I can’t begin to imagine what he has meant — and still means — to you as his grandchildren. He is still a big part of you and will be for a long, long time to come.
Keep your memories of your grandpa Vic alive and well. It will help your hearts heal.

My sympathy and prayers. He always seemed to have a smile . I think back on the time he brought Kevin and Roy back Christmas Eve at Kevin and Carols after services when the rest of us forgot them.
Iwas so sad to hear of Vic’s passing. A friend since childhood, he was as nice as they come. He will be missed but are lucky to count him as a friend. Our condolences and prayers for his family.
