Vinnie's Funeral Expenses

November 18, 2017 is a date that has forever changed our family. Vinnie Susnowitz at 28 years young, lost his life way too soon to a tragic accident.  We lost a son, brother, uncle, nephew, grandson, and above all, friend.  Vinnie could brighten any room with his infectious smile, and lift anyone's spirits with one of his patented bear hugs.  He was immensely committed to the family he left behind, Kelly (mother), Vince (father), Ashley (sister), Dillon (brother), Lexi (niece), Axel (nephew) and Jax (nephew).  

Vinnie's final act of his life was the most heroic and selfless act, and donated 3 of his organs to save the lives of 3 complete strangers who will get a second chance at life.  Our family has lived through both sides of this experience, and although we are mourning the loss of Vinnie, we find comfort in the joy and hope he selflessly gave to those families.

This tragic accident has left our family reeling emotionally these last few weeks.  On top of that, the expenses incurred due to immediate family traveling to visit Vinnie in the hospital during his final hours, as well as these unforeseen funeral arrangements, have been steadily mounting. Any contributions would be immensely appreciated to help Kelly, Vince and their family through this incredibly difficult time, and alleviate some of the stress.  Any funds raised in excess of the expenses incurred will be donated to the LifeLink Foundation (
) in memory of Vinnie.
