Not sure what to say?

To Tom and Family

So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He was always so good to me and Tom, and always had a good joke, and funny story or a punch in the arm for me.

For some reason he taught me how to drive a fork lift one day at the feed store in Kearney. Little did I realize it was a delegation of work but for a 14 year old I felt on top of the world loading that feed truck.

Many sleep overs at the Verplank house, Little League, Midget and Legion...

Aunt Vida Mae, Bill, Tommy, & Carey Sue and families. I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Allen was very special to me and I will forever hold him dear to my heart. We had many great times together and he will truly be missed. I feel very blessed that I was able to see him in May when I was home. He was a great man.

Love from your neice Kathy

Aunt Vida Mae, Bill, Tommy, Carey Sue & families - you are in my thoughts and prayers. Uncle Allen was very special in my life and he will always be remembered deep inside our hearts. We had many great times which I cherish. He will truly be missed. I love you all.

Allen and my father, Lloyd Reeves were classmates and teammates in Palmer. The highlight of my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary was the reunion of the high school football team. 60% of the team was there. (It was a 5 man team, and 3 of them were there, Verplank, Reeves and Swadley). It brought so much JOY to my Dad to see them and reunite. He commented on Allen's athletic abilities. My Dad passed in Jan. Now they can reunite in Heaven again.

Dear Vita Mae: Sorry to hear of your loss. I hope every thing else is going well for you. I'd love to hear from you

To the Verplank family,

So sorry to hear about Allen. He was a great guy and will miss him coming in shopping with Vida every week as he always had something to tell me. You guys are all in my thoughts and prayers.
