--- At the age of 82, God saw you getting tired, a cure was not to be.. So God put his arms around you and whispered, “Come with me.” With tearful eyes, we watched you pass away and even though we loved you, we could not make you stay. A loving heart stopped beating, your working hands now at rest. God broke our hearts to prove HE only takes the best…
Ronnie and Vicki Byrd played a large part in taking care of Vernon during the lengthy decline of his health. On behalf of your family, thank you for all the assistance you gave Daddy and Momma.
