Dear Joan, Kim, Chad and Dion, I will always be thankful for LaVerl's help with the cabin after dad passed. He was so insistent that I was successful and taking care of things and offering help. Mom and Dad were very fond of all of you and I do miss our time at the cabin. I will always remember LaVerl yelling out to dad "how you doin Unc"!
I am grateful to have known him, and peace be with all of you.
With love and condolences
Dearest Joan and family,
My heart aches for you and your wonderful family!
I loved Verl- he was one of the "good guys".
Courtney, Byron and Alex have some great memories of our many "visits" to your cabin.
I hope the wonderful memories of your sweet husband will help you carry on.
Mom, Dad and Verl are probably enjoying the reunion.
