|Let the memory of Vern be with us forever|
"I met Vern through my Mom and Sandra's Master Gardener friendship. He was instantly 'my friend' and the light of my visits with my folks. We began with martini bonding, and boy could we have fun! I was lucky to spend my birthday in June at dinner with him and Sandra... something I drove over to do, and it was a beautiful day, and a fun evening just before his last illness. So glad we did it. And Sandra let me visit him at OHSU, which was a dear memory. He was such a great guy: it's hard to describe him in words.
I will miss him terribly, and hope Sandra can recover from his passing."
"I remember first meeting Vern at a neighbors ~ quiet, composed, grounded. I SO enjoyed talking with him about his careers, those conversations help "shape" me for my next season of life. "Gone, but not forgotten". Thank you for all you did for so many people Vern.
Sandra, I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."
"To the family,
I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. Although I don't know you personally, Please accept my deepest condolences. When I have lost loved ones, I have found comfort in knowing God provides a hope for the future. I wanted to share what I have found.
Acts 24:15''- there is going to be a resurrection.'' God is capable of restoring life back to those who have past away, because he created all of mankind in the beginning, he certainly has the power to do it again. The Bible says that it is going to be soon that God will act to bring about this promise he has made.
Hebrews 6:19-'' ..it is impossible for God to lie.'' What God promises for the future, he will bring about. We can have complete trust in his promises.
