“Spring is sprung, the grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is?
I recalled this phrase on Tuesday when I saw the first Robin of spring. And then immediately thought of Uncle Vern and Auntie Kay. It reminds me of them so much. Watching the birds and deer through the kitchen window, or outside in the yard. Plus the telling of so many great stories that never got old, no matter how often you heard them. I will remember Uncle Vern for his kind heart and zest for the outdoors and farm. He will be so dearly missed, and kept in my heart always.
Here is one of my favourite photos of Uncle Vern, relaxing with my old pets, Boots and Muffin.

My fondest memories of your Dad are those of your Mom and Dad together. They shared a strong, affectionate bond sprinkled with a wonderful sense of humor. I recall the teasing, the laughter and the giggles. I hope that those same memories bring you all comfort.

Uncle Vern was so much fun to talk to. He lived his life his way and was the benevolent ruler of his corner of the world. He always had time for small creatures, wild or tame, and I loved listening to him talk of the rabbits or cats or deer that entertained him. He amazed me always with his ability to make an old machine new again and his pride was evident. His best accomplishment was done with Auntie Kay in raising kind, caring, thoughtful and intelligent children that I know were his greatest joy. He will be sorely missed.

My most sincere sympathies to all Vern's children and families. I have many fond memories spend with the Mayer family. When I was younger, as a family we would go visit the Mayer's once a month. They returned the visit with the Gehrman family, the next month. Mr. and Mrs. Mayer had an ice cream churn, having that on a Saturday night was a treat!

You are the strongest man I have ever known. You worked hard, loved us all with all you had, laughed alot. Kayla even went out a got herself some rubber boots like your Sawnhills Oxford. She was so excited to have them. All just so she could have something like you. We will all miss your stories and your funny faces. Rest easy dad and give mom a hug form us.
