    On behalf of the SMSA (SSA) community, I want to say that we are sorry for your loss. Vinny was a fine young man. He would always come into my classroom with a great smile; great athlete; always polite and respectful. Our prayers go out to your family and friends. May God grant you peace and comfort in the days ahead in the midst of deep pain.
    Yours truly,
    Mr. Eli Rodriguez
