Mary and Sherry,

I just learned of Vernon's passing. Please know that along with my sympathy come very happy memories on the Bellarmine ball field. I am so grateful to have known him. My memories are of Vern's contagious excitement and love for the game. My thoughts and prayers are with you both in the coming months.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. Mr. Vernon Bibb was such an inspiration to my father and I. He taught me everything I know about pitching and we always enjoyed being around him. I am truly blessed to have met Mr. Bibb, he was such an amazing person.

My fondest memory is riding shotgun on the Bellarmine bus listening to the Oldies but Goodies and hearing many wonderful stories about his wife Sherry and his family. I was a walk on and truly blessed to have had the opportunity to play fast pitch at Bellarmine. Although pitching was his passion he inspired some catchers along the way. His smile says it all. So sorry I missed the service as I am just finding out-prayers to his family and friends.

Thinking of the Bibb family during this time. It has been years since I have seen you all but I have some good memories of playing softball with Mary and being coached by Vernon back in the day on the all-star team and at Bellarmine.

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. My daughter (Courtney Baker) was a pitching student/camp attendee for only 2 years. We will be forever grateful for his contribution to her softball career. She has learned so much from him. We will remember him always. RIP Vernon

Our condolences to Sherry and Vernon's Family. He was such a joy to be around. Always smiling and joking with everyone. He has been such an inspiration to our daughter, Alexis True, with her pitching and over the years became a good friend and teacher to her. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. You all are in our prayers and may God's mercy and grace be with you all during this difficult time.
