    We are so sorry for Vern to not be with us anymore, but, we know that he is finally not suffering. I will miss our Saturday get togethers for coffee at Cashwise and talking about sports and everything in between. Also, my wife took great joy in supplying Vern with canned goodies from our garden and baking for him during the holidays. Vern, you will be truly missed by us and hope you are finally back out on the golf course where you belong. All our love
