    Dear Vittorio Family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. We loved Victor and he was my son’s only Barber and his hair hasn’t been right since. I will never forget my son seeing Victor in church when he was 5 and wouldn’t even look at him thinking he was getting his hair cut after church. My son was a difficult customer when he was younger and Victor knew how to coax him into sitting still and being one of his best customers and he misses his lollipops and bubble gum(Victor always gave him pennies for gum).
    You are in our thoughts and prayers and we will miss him so much.

    Love the Barnard Family-Wilmington
