In loving memory of Vincent E. Bonadie, Daddy, I miss you more then words could ever explain, You have taken a piece of my soul with you, my heart will be forever broken. I will forever treasure the greatest father, the greatest memories of a life far better then I could have dreamed of, all because of you. Thank you for 39 years of love and laughter. Wish you could have stayed but I know once you saw grandpa you were never coming back. See you in heaven. You are unforgettable, that’s what you are ❤️

I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the entire Bonadie, Mendes family. Vinny was a great guy and always had a big smile whenever and wherever you saw him. He would always introduce his son to me and make sure that he was aware that we were family. My he rest in peace with Our Lord until you meet again.

Vinny, if it were not for you many things in my life would not have happened. You were my cousin but more like a brother. You taught me many things but most of all unconditional love and acceptance of things we cannot control in life. You defended me & protected me. I am a better person because of you in our family. I truly feel blessed. I miss you so much and love you until we see each other again. So long for now. RIP. 💕

Dear Bernice, Tara, Jeff, Alex, Cheyanne, Jai-Lynn, Marcelino, Venus, Vinny Jr., Wayne, extended family and friends, I know you all have had a very difficult time since Father’s Day. We were so shocked at the news, as I had been talking to Vinny in our adjoining yards the previous Thursday evening. It was always a pleasure to be out front and see Vinny holding court with the neighbors! He always had a big smile and word (or more) of advice. We are so sorry for what you’re all going through. I know he would want you all to be strong and you will be. But in those moments when you feel it’s so hard, we’re right here next to you to help. May Vinny rest in eternal peace and love, may God bless him and all of you. Deb Imondi & Michael Femino
