Vernon, was a very good neighbor, always keep his yard and his home, looking nice, and always raised a beautiful garden, especially his sweet corn. He loved sitting on his front porch and visiting with you. I sure am going to miss hearing and seeing that little Subaru go by my house, he enjoyed going out for car rides, he will miss by me. My prayers are with his family. Edna Mae
