Letter to Vernon Keith Northover from his dear wife:
It seems wherever I go, People come into my life or go out of it, Touching me where I can feel, Then leaving me only a MEMORY.
It’s like the Gossamer Fairy Tales of Children
As Easily Forgotten. And I wasn’t even through knowing all of them! How Do I know who I am seeing for the last time?
How do you stop your life together?
Keep those around you that you’ve Ever known? and
How do you keep fairytales from Losing their magic?
“So Vernon, you came and you Brushed against the walls of my life and Stayed long enough for us to know and love Each Other even though we Would have to part sometime”
We both knew The longer you stayed…. The more I would want you back when you were gone!
“But Even in My Memory you will Still Come Anyway….
Fairy Tales are the happiest stories we read
Great Books are made of little chapters” Rest In Peace and Sweet Memories My Love

Lottie and the family are in my prayers in the loss of beloved Vernon. When my sister, Wanda and I visited Lottie and Vernon in Florida a few years ago, we were met with such warmth and hospitality. Vernon was so easy to talk to and had many humorous things to say. It was a very memorable trip and a very fond memory.
Since that time Vernon would stay in touch from time-to-time on FB and it was always nice to hear from him and Lottie.
Thank you for the memories. Heartfelt love and prayers are sent during this time of bereavement.

Such sweet memories of so many fun times. I was an honor to call you a friend. p.s. I still want to know your recipe for the hummingbirds! I never saw so many fighting over a feeder. I still see that coy smile spread across your face as you replied that it was your secret. Rest In Peace sweet gentle man.
