My words cannot fully express the sorrow I feel. My heart is heavy with the news of Victor's home going. My prayers are with all those that loved him and those he loved. I will always have a place in my heart for him. I will especially remember the time he opened his home to my sister and I when we were young. I can still hear him yelling downstairs at Vicky, Tee, Florida and my sister and I. May you treasure the wonderful times you shared with him. My prayers are with friends and family.
