  • My condolences to all of Vernon’s family. His Mother and mine were great friends and Vernon is one of my high school classmates. There was only ONE Vernon and I have such wonderful, zany, memories of times we shared. Here is one where I still laugh today when I think of it. Vernon picked me up to drive us to a church youth gathering in a neighboring town. When he stopped the car for a traffic light it stalled. The car behind us honked loudly. Vernon yelled out the window to the driver in back “If you will come up here and start my car, I’ll go back there and honk your horn!” There were many more such funny, funny experiences whenever Vernon was around. I know he enriched the lives of all those who shared his life. May he rest in peace. Sincerely, Shirley Meckley in Kerrville, Texas
