Doris,john& family: may your father rest in peace.
Other than giving us two wonderful nieces, the greatest gift my sister Jeanette Hull Hiebert ever gave our family was to make Dale and his family part of ours. We absolutely adored Vern. Our lives were enriched in so many ways by knowing this kind, loving man. Even though we know he suffered mightily during his lengthy illness, he maintained his sweet spirit. His was a life well lived, and the world was made a much nicer place by his presence. Dale and Jeanette, Doris and John, Diane, and the rest of the Vern's family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We send our love.
I am grateful for the life of Mr. Hiebert. Thanks to his service and to the service of others in our armed forces, my family and I have been able to lead our lives in freedom and peace.
