I am so sorry to lose another classmate. I didn't know Vernon had served in the military so thank you for your service, belated but heart felt.  Karen Burgess-Kohn

Vernon and I walked to school every day when we were in Junior High.  He was a good friend. we fished the missouri and hiked along it's woods together.  Then I moved to the south side of town and we kind of lost track of each other.  Rest In Peace Vernon....    Carl Brobst

I was sorry to read Vernon's obituary in the SC Journal. I remember Vernon as a very quiet individual. He and his family lived next door to my grandparents.RIP Vernon.
