So sorry to hear of Vern’s passing. He was kind and gentle person. We enjoyed his quiet demeanour and dry sense of humour. He was always ready for a trip to “Timmies". Helen and Terry Pergentile.

Dear June:

I am saddened to hear of Vernon's passing. There are people who come into your life and, for some reason, they just make an impression. Vernon was one of them. I would see you together and think "this is a lovely couple". May the memories that you have of great times spent together bring you comfort during this difficult time.
