Vernon or as I called him Vernon V, was a long time friend of mine from the late 60's. And after I moved away our friendship continued with visits to Houston always involving a pleasant dinner with Vernon.

After spending 40 years in California, when I moved back to the Houston Area, I looked forward to renewing our friendship, but his phone went unanswered.

I know know why. I know that he was surrounded by his family, of which he was so proud. Bless you all.

I will miss him dearly, however.
