  • To Tanya and the Family,
    Sorry for your loss. I want to share with you a comforting promise from God that he has given us at John 5:28,29 it gives us hope in seeing our loved ones again. God feels the pain we go through so he wants us to be happy, and it wasn’t God’s purpose for us to experience death so he is going to fix that problem soon

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tonya and family. We knew Vern as a great husband and family man. He was a strong willed man who revolved his life around his family. He’s in heaven now with little Vernie and family with no more pain. He will be missed.

  • Tanya and family, our love and prays are with everyone. Remember to let sweet Jesus hold you in his arms during this time of sorrow. He has called Vern home and now he will be watching over everyone whom he loved and loved him.

  • My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family during this difficult time as you struggle through the grief and sadness of the loss of your husband. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Vern was one of a kind I don’t know of anything he couldn’t do or fix. He was always doing things for the kids from hay rides, go karts or hooking up the wagon to his John Deere and pulling them around anything he could do to put smiles on their faces and laughter in their life. Building swing sets, taking them fishing, teaching them how to swim and especially how to dive. Going to ball games and cheering them on. I have so many memories and will cherish them always.
    I Love You brother more than you will ever know.

  • So sorry to hear of the lost of your loved one. May peace and love be with the whole family. (Linda Lewis and the family of Carroll and Loraine Lewis)

  • I am very sorry for your loss. He will be missed by all. He was such a good friend and classmate. My heartfelt sympathy to the family.
