Dr. Vines was a very special Doctor and friend. When I was hemorrhage, Dr. Vines was standing out in the rain with a cup of coffee waiting for the ambulance and helped get me inside. I don't know if I ever told him how much that touched my heart. He was indeed a special Doctor and I was sad to hear that he had died. Prayers for your family.

Dear entire related Vines Family, My condolences. Dr. Vines was always so nice and respectful of me. Always positive with a smile. I have made a memorial contribution in his name to Forsythe Avenue Beautification for one of the tree plantings in front of Parkview Baptist Church in the Forsythe Avenue boulevards.

I’ve been missing Dr. Vines ever since he retired. He and Madge made such a wonderfully caring team, who, together, ministered to the gynecological needs of so many of those of us who had the good fortune to be under his care. As a single working woman who many times did not have funds for services Dr. Vines deemed essential to my well-being, Doc always found a way to make things happen, whether in his office or at other sites (teaching facilities), at no, or little cost, to me. I will always remember him with the greatest respect, as a physician and a human being.

I was one of the residents tutored by Dr Vines in the early 80’s. We all respected and admired him. A kind and dedicated man who was a wonderful role model.

Annie Jopling left a message on May 1, 2018:
Dr. Vines went to medical school with my father. Daddy always had great respect for his keen intelligence and gentle nature. He told me once that Dr. Vines had a "way with patients that made them love him". I witnessed that as a nurse at SF and as a nurse practitioner at the Woman's Clinic. He was a joy to work with. He mentored his younger partners and so many others in their profession. He was always kind and treated others equally. What love and devotion he demonstrated to his family! We can all take from his example of God's love. You will be missed Dr. Vines. To all the family I leave heartfelt condolences. Much love...
Claire Brockman left a message on April 30, 2018:
Dr Vines was one of the most admired men I know. He was knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, and ethical in his professional and private life. I knew him as my father's dear friend and partner and later was privileged to work with him in surgery. Earth has lost one of the finest men I have ever known. My deepest condolences to all of the Vines family. May you have peace knowing that your precious dad is safe in the arms of his Lord.
