I will miss Vern. We met at he donut shop years ago and became friends. I and many others enjoyed hearing his tales of the Navy, construction equipment operator, truck driver, woodworker, and of his wife and family. After his eyes failed and could not drive , I would pick him up. One icy morning ,when we should have stayed home, his daughter came out to tell us "Stay Home!" and she slipped on the ice (not hurt) , we laughed and drove off. Soon we wished we had listened to her. But we made it to the donut shop, staying until roads improved and not admitting we were wrong to go. Vern, "you never told me your name was Lavern!" My sympathy to all.
