My prayers are with you.
Vernon welcomed me when I first moved to Lynchburg as I worked with him at Lynchburg General Hospital. He shared many stories. We had another Kathy in our department, so he came up with a nickname for me - "Shortcake."
Another memory - I received two dozen roses from some one I did not care for, so Vernon took them home to Nellie. He was so happy he was able to do this.

Vernon is my father in law and the moment I met him he welcomed me into the family with open arms. When my grandson was born he gained a new great grandson and has loved on him like his biological family. I don't believe Vernon ever met a stranger. He will truly missed.
