Sending our love and prayers to all of the family at this sad time. I have fond memories of my cousin Verne from our childhood visits at Grandma and Grandpa White's home in Nettleton/Jonesboro, and also the trip we made to visit in North Carolina. I still remember going to swim at the neighborhood pool on that trip. Rest in peace Verne.
love from Denise and also love from my Dad (Verne's Uncle Joe Smith) and Dad's wife Bettye Joyce.
