The passing of our leader, founder and mentor has left VGM associates heartbroken these past few days. The hallways will not be the same without his friendly smile. He was an inspiration to many and a friend to us all. He will be greatly missed.
A memorial page has been set up to view information about the funeral services, leave condolences, and see a list of charities that were dear to Van.
Thank you for the kind words and thoughts sent to VGM associates this week. It demonstrates what an impact Van made on so many people.
