Our Dear Friend, Vic passed and we were unaware. Leon is recouperating from a procedure or we would have been there . Vic was "Best Man" for Leon when we married 9 years ago. One of our happiest memories was crashing his last birthday party, enjoying the love and fellowship, and getting those priceless pictures of Vic, Tommie and Leon. We loved Vic very much and will see him again in Heaven.
