Julie and family,
We were so sorry to hear about Gary, but rejoicing in knowing he is walking the streets of gold. We will never forget his smiling face and strong handshake when we greeted you in church. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. If there is anything at all we can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask. Rod, Tarie, and Jake

I can't tell you how sad I am at Gary's passing. I enjoyed my association with him for those years we worked together at Liberty. He taught me a lot about Trust. I still remember when he and I went to call on a Probate Judge in a nearby town. Gary pointed at me, and declared to the Judge: "Bob doesn't have a will!" trying to poke fun at me. To Gary's astonishment, the judge replied, "neither do I". I teased him all the way back to the office. He was truly a person I respected so much, and he will always be alive in my memories. My heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

I was so sorry to learn about the death of Gary Vernon. He and Julie lived upstairs from us in the house on Curtis Street. I had the pleasure of meeting Kristopher, but not their other sons. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies. Such a wonderful family. Gary was a terrific husband, father and scout leader. When my son was in boy scouts, I used to see him at some of the joint scouting events. May all the wonderful memories you have give you comfort during the difficult days ahead.

My Dear Julie and family,

I am so very sorry for your loss. I know with your strong faith, you know that Gary is in the arms of Jesus. I pray that you find comfort in each other as you move through the grief.
