A note from the family: Our family is completely heartbroken over the loss of our beloved son and brother, Vincent Rossetti. These past few weeks have been excruciating while we held out hope for a safe return. We now know Vinnie went home to be with his Dad. To say he was one of a kind is an understatement. His infectious spirit and energy filled every room he entered. He was kind, funny, generous and willing to do anything to help a friend or a loved one. He was a hard worker, smart and tenacious…but most importantly, he was the best son and brother a family could ask for. He was also fighting mental illness. While we grieve the loss of Vinnie, we hope that others will use his memory as a reminder of the critical importance that mental health plays in all of our lives. This illness is serious, yet still people feel shame and embarrassment to get the help they need. If you or a loved one is in need of support for mental illness please call 1-800-662-HELP.

Vinnie, Vinnie, Vinnie, So tall and skinny, A smile a mile long, Love for your family so strong, Struggled with the death of your dad, So, so sad, Your sisters and your mother, Will miss a son and brother, This outcome, no one knew, Family and friends miss you! But finally we know where you are, With your father above the stars.
