Condolences

Shirley, I was so sorry to read of Vernon's passing. It has been many years since we first met thru the K of C 3331. We moved to Texas in 1974 and I have since returned to BR. Again, my condolences to you and your family. Phyllis Daigle Ferguson

Neighbor, teacher, Paw Paw. Mr. Vernon will always be remembered and loved by those who knew him. Whether it was cooking or whistling, he always radiated joy. He taught me so many things that are part of who I am today and will be instilled in my family for future generations. His spirit will live on through many.
