    Aunt Sharon and family,

    My sincere sympathy and condolences to everyone in Uncle Vern’s family. His genial nature and ability to bring smiles and laughter to us kids bring fond memories that will last forever.
    I’m sorry I wasn’t able to rearrange my schedule to attend Uncle Vern’s service.

    My deepest sympathy to everyone,

    My grandfather was a good man, still is probably just smoking a cigarette and telling jokes with Uncle Richie.
