Not sure what to say?

I flew many trips with Vern, always a great pleasure to see him sitting in the cockpit. I believe Vern and my husband were in the same class at C&S, his DOH was 05/07/51, I started with Delta in 1956. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I fondly remember flying with Vern. I started in November 1959 and retired in 2018. So sorry to learn of his passing. Marti Wilson, Delta Flight Attendant

Deepest sympathies are extended to the family of Captain Whitman on behalf of Delta Golden Wings (DGW), a fraternity of retired and active pilots. For 33 years Vern carried thousands upon thousands of passengers safely through their life journeys. His skill, leadership, and friendship is recalled joyfully by those of us who shared his time with us. Jeff Pickett, Secretary, DGW

I flew with Vern several times when he was a young Captain in Memphis. He was one of the nicest gentlemen with whom I worked in my 33 years with Delta. My deepest condolences to his loved ones.
Unfortunately, I rarely saw him after the Memphis Pilot Base was closed, but i have fond memories of my time as his copilot!

My Dad .. my hero . I will always have you in my heart and mind each and every day of my life . I will love you for-ever. Gerry
