Joel, Jenny and family you are in Sharron's and my thoughts and prayers in the loss of Vern. HE was so awesome as my good friends father and friend to me. Many memories of a lot of good times. When we were kids Vern and Dick Close used to chase us in there police cruisers on our dirt bikes for driving on the back roads. We would go over by the Muskegon motorcycle club hills cause they couldn't climb them in the cruiser. WE thought we were bad until they got police dirt bikes. damn. Oh well. WE will remember Vern forever. God bless all the family at this time of sorrow. Anything we can do just let us know.
