Hazel, It is a few days after the funeral service for Vernon, and so sorry I didn't get to the service or see you. I just found out today, Sept 1, that Vernon went home to heaven. We can celebrate the goodness of Vernon's homegoing, but the bitter/sweet sadness and joy is extend to you Hazel. I have loved you both for many years. I wish you the best, and may God Bless You Richly. Love Mike Zierden
