Even though your loss is great, you can rejoice in that Vern is with the Lord as well as his Mother and Brother in Heaven. My hopes and prayers are that you will be able to find comfort and closure in knowing that, and that you will see him again. God Bless all of you. Sally

Nancy and family. I am so sorry for your loss. Vern was a wonderful man and friend to so many. My memories with Vern go way back to VBS at First Reformed on Wilson. The big red brick church. We had to be less than 10 years old. May God comfort you and your family in your time of grief. Love n Prayers Jerry n Pam
