They enjoyed going on cruises and Vern loved to fish, boating, his blue grass/country music (listening plus playing his guitar and banjo) and enjoyed watching the Kansas City Chiefs. He also loved watching his westerns on the Grit channel. Vern was a genuinely nice person.

Hesher (Tom Bertoncin). Many thanks to the St. Croix Hospice and The Piper Staff for all the loving care given to Laverne.
