  1. Another Angel recieved their Wings ..I will miss you Uncle Vern ..Say Hi to my Mom , Dad , sisters and my brother and the rest of the family that’s hugging you right now ..You are in Great Company

  2. Vern, you were a great friend. I am happy to call you a friend and neighbor for the past 15 or so years that you were on Barto Dr. One of the best neighbors a person could ask for. I will always be thankful for you helping my Father and I whenever you could. Our last conversation was July 1st. Miss ya buddy.
