I work at Stonehill in the Activities department. Vern's favorite time to see me was when I was playing my guitar. He always loved to hear Johnny Cash's "Fulsome Prison." He always had a smile on his face when I saw him. I'm sorry to hear of his passing, and I would like the family to know of my prayers and condolences. Vern will be missed.

Always enjoyed visiting with Bum. Sorry for your loss.

I regret that I will be unable to attend the wake for LaVern as I am committed to the Alzheimer's walk that morning and also have a committal service at 11:00. I enjoyed knowing LaVern at Stonehill. He was a faithful daily Mass attendee and always had a positive attitude. We could all be so lucky if we were able to grow older with as much grace as LaVern demonstrated. May God's peace be with your family as you mourn his loss, and may you be comforted with countless memories.
God bless,
Deacon Bill Mauss
