My heart is so saddened of Vern's passing. I was looking so forward to being together with friends when we could. Never dreamed getting Christmas card thinking all was well. Carma and family, I will miss Vern and he shared the same birthday as our Gary, which they always remembered. God bless you all from above. Carla Klein
