    Vernon was a wonderful friend! He and his wife have been in our home many times…now they are celebrating in heaven! My most fun with Vernon was Veterans Day. I would take the boys ( my dad is also 93) to breakfast, and once lunch. How they loved visiting with other Veterans! One last “ thank you” to Vernon for his service, smile, love of God, and cheery stories. He is greatly missed! Julie Williams
