Not sure what to say?

Martha Jo and I just returned from Texas after attending the death of her
brother Vernon Bethea Davis. I use the term attending because that is exactly
what we did...attend his death. He passed peacefully surrounded by members of the family who were celebrating his life rather than mourning his death. In many
ways it was a uplifting experience.

Make no mistake about it, we were and are sad to continue this life without
Vernon as we are with all our loved...

Sending our love and prayers to our Davis cousins. We wish we could be there to help celebrate Uncle Vernon's life. It is humbling to read about all that he accomplished in life but we know his greatest accomplishment was his family. Uncle Vernon and Aunt Pat will continue to live on through their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

I send my love and warm wishes to the Davis family. I celebrate the life of a wonderful man, my Father-in-law for 20 years and a dear friend. I can not begin to count the many laughs we shared and the heart to heart talks we had. I am so grateful to have had you as my children's grandfather. I witnessed first hand the love you had for your children. I saw your eyes twinkle whenever you saw your grandchildren. The love you had for your wife Pat was such an awesome testimony of your faith. You...

My thoughts and prayers are with all the Davis family. I know Vern will be missed but also know he will always be watching over you.

My deepest sympathy to the entire Davis family. Vernon was a wonderful person that I loved very much. He was a wonderful father in law to me for 20 years and I am blessed by having known him. He was also a terrific Granddaddy! He was one of the sweetest people I have known and always brought a smile to the faces of those he was around. He was a great man and will be missed by so many. May you all take comfort in your memories of him and in knowing how many lives he touched in such a positive...

Kathy and Shane sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. -Joyce and Roger Handley

Long ago in the "backwoods" of what was then the little town of Orlando, FL, I knew Vernon as one of the big brothers of my best friends, Martha Jo and JoAnn Davis. Through them I have, over the years, heard about Vernon's life, career, and family. My sincerest sympathy goes out now to Vernon's loved ones and I pray you will be comforted by many warm memories of his life.

Go with God my Brother.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you, the family. Not only to Vernon's blood relatives but to the large extended family he had drawn to himself. Sir Knight Vernon Davis was respected and loved by everyone in our order. His wonderful smile and kind words were an oft' and great encouragment to all who knew him. He was a marvelous mentor to me personally and was instrumental in my character development. I always looked up to him with the deepest respect. This is a great loss to Burnet Commandery...
