The family wishes to express gratitude to Heritage Corner and Bridge Hospice who provided care and concern especially during the past four months when family visits were not possible.
While the family wishes to celebrate Vic’s life, concerns for the health and well-being of friends and extended family are being considered due to COVID-19.
