I loved Vernon
I was a friend of Bonnie’s from Calvary Chapel Bible School
I sang in her wedding
He kept in touch with me for many years on Facebook
I’m so sorry to hear of his passing
But he sure led an incredible life
And brought Bonnie who was one of my dearest friends into this world
I will miss him

CandleVernon was a very good man. I will always remember him fondly for the sweet bond he shared with my sister, Tammy. May he rest softly in peace. My deep condolences to his family.
