Vernon, I'm very sorry about the loss of your son. An uncle of mine once said , after losing a son, that 'losing a child is the very worst experience in life' ....
My only son, 51 yrs. yesterday, is very ill at present with Crohns disease, just diagnosed this month after having suffered two months or longer .

May God share his Blessings on You/Family and most of all on your Son, May HE RIP !
Your Ol' Buddy,
Smith Oliver

Vernon & Diane, our deepest sympathy to you and your children. We know that Wade had a strong faith and now is in the presence of King Jesus. We regret we were in North Carolina today and didn't get back for visitation. Hope to see you tomorrow.
