Vern is someone I will never forget. I will always remember his kind smile, his regular visits to the pool, watching hockey games with him, and him riding his bike every morning at the pool. He is an amazing man and I feel so blessed to have known him. Heaven has a good one. Thoughts and prayers for Vern and his family.
