Grandpa used to joke around about giving me a hair cut and always playing around like can I have that. Grandpa was full life and I never seen him sad, he was kind, honest, loving, caring and always in a happy mood. Grandpa never said anything wrong about anyone he loved everyone has god told us to do.Grandpa we will miss you and remember you gentle soul and the way you touch our lives by your loving hands and about your love for your family and friends. Grandpa your passing away was a shot to me because the last time I seen you you was at my brother Adam Wedding and you looked like you had the time of your live and I will always think of you being the way you are ... I love you Grandpa

To a kind spirit Uncle Vern. What a sad day for all of us. You were truly the kindest man I have known! Always smiling, always happy and always fun to be around! I will always cherish that hunting trip you and I walked together. Cant remember where it was (Im sure someone can) but we had fun! You were a great family man and I thank you for being around when I was growing up! Paul says, thank you Vern for welcoming him into this family and making him feel part of it. Always there to lend a hand is so true! I pray for comfort for your family and friends in this time. Forever gone but not forgotten. We will miss you. Love Paul and Cherrell Thomas
