Barb, Peg and I really enjoyed the good times we spent with you and Vernon, plucking chickens, riding horses, feeding cows, canning vegetables, stopping for giant milkshakes on our way home from Tacoma! Ah, the good old days! We have such fond memories of you both and are sorry to hear that Vern has passed away. If you're ever driving through Boise, we will always have a room available for you! All our love, Larry and Peg.

Vernon will be missed by all of us. He and I grew up together and being so close in age, he seemed more like a brother to me than a cousin. Many fun summers were spent at the farm with Vernon and his sister, Delores. Our prayers are with you and your entire family
