terry kraml, May 24, 2018 Our hearts go out to you, Nita and your family. Vern grew up two streets from our house and was Dennis, my younger brother's best buddy! He was always over at our house either driving my mother crazy or eating his favorite dish, chicken mole!! We all grew up in West Covina, CA during the late 60's early 70's. We all went our separate ways as we grew older in life. Myself moving and living in Texas. Dennis told me that Vern also was outside Dallas and we got to see and talk to each other in our later years. I was very lucky to meet up with him as we grew older talking about old times as little guys in the neighborhood. I'm going to miss his conversation, his laugh, his energy!! Nita, I can't imagine being without your soul mate of 44 years! I'm so glad Vern had you around all these years, you have be a very special person! As a friend of Vern's I want to thank you for watching over my buddy from the old neighborhood!! Your friend always... Dale & Irene Melby Dale & Irene Melby, May 10, 2018
