Linda and Family,

We have fond, fond memories of Vern.  We was Gerry's go-to-guy including the time he helped shingle the roof on the home we built. While finding time shingle, Vern also found time to nail daughter Katie's pants to the roof.  His big heart and generous spirit will be missed. The ten days we spent in Alaska with you and Vern was one of our best get-a-way memories ever.

Bev and Gerry

Dear Linda,

I am very sad to hear of Vern's passing and I wish you my most sincere condolences. I have many fond memories of Vern and you, especially for all the help given me when I first purchased Hay Lake Lodge. I do not think I would have survived without your aid. May Vern rest in peace and may his memory live with us forever.
