Condolence: Vera and family, My condolences to you and your family. You and Vernon were great neighbors to me and my parents, Ralph and Etta Rouse. What a great experience, when you and Vernon let my sisters and I tour the barn we remembered growing up in our childhood. Vernon was always smiling, and still is.
