Not sure what to say?

Vern and Family--
May the love and respect that you had for your Dad and his love for you help ease the loss in your hearts. I had the pleasure of meeting your Dad once at the Bonsai Club Show. He seemed so happy and proud to be at the show with two of his children. I will never forget his sense of humor and how it felt like we were old friends.

Thank you, Dad, for being the steady, gentle hand that guided all of us kids. I will miss you a lot, but I will always love you so much more.
