    I spent lots of time with you all through your childhood & up until we both moved away from Calif. We all loved you..including Uncle Kim & our 3 kids. My son Chad described you as “a gentle giant”, always kind and caring. Aunt Pat

    I will always remember Vince as the tall giant, who always was giving somebody something, especially as Jim would say “Cousin Vince would always bring him donuts and goodies, wherever he was working.” So many love and will miss you so very much. “The kindness man I ever met” RIP

    Condolences to the Shockley family. May Jehovah the “God of Comfort” bring you comfort and peace at this difficult time (2 Corinthians 1:3 & 4). Your family are in our prayers.

    My deepest sincere sympathies to the survivors of Vince’s family, and to Vince, you were such a good, kind man. I am glad you are no longer living with pain, and that your suffering is over, but so sad you weren’t here with us much longer than this. May your spirit be at rest, and forever know peace.
