    Family, I am sorry for the loss of Vernon. He will be missed. Please know that God cares about you at this difficult time. ( Peter 5:7 ) For more encouragement from the Bible, please go to and type in comfort.

  3. Dw says:

    To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Vernon has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.
