Dear Kitty, Larry, Kevin, Kim, and the whole family,

Verna has a very special place in our heart. We have so many beautiful memories of Verna with "baby Ryan"(!) when Kitty used to babysit back in the old days, and Fred was there helping Larry in some home-improvement project, both of them always setting an example of a devoted family! What a blessing that you came into our lives, by chance, 33 years ago. We will miss Verna, but I'm sure she's happy to be back in Fred's arms. We send you our love and you are all in prayers.

Blessings,
Sue & Mark Kuyawa

Kitty, Cathy, Larry,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Vern was such a great lady. I could tell 50 years of memory of both her and Fred, from camping, to wedding, to dancing at Tri County many years ago, her as a customer at Magic Mirror,UMI and so much more. Just keep all your memories in your heart.

Your friends always,

Linda and Craig Sayers
