  • Grew up with Vern & his brother Larry, knew Mom & Dad, great people, played sports with Vern & Larry & spent lots of time hanging out with St Vital guys. Renewed acquaintances when we moved back to Wpg, it was like old times with lots of stories when we were growing up. Met Bernice a wonderful Lady & was sorry when we learned of Vern's Parkinson's but between Bernice & him they coped with it very well. Good Bye old Friend, RIP. - Posted by: Tom & Evelyn.
