Roy and Sylvia Smith

Perry and family,
Shocked to see Vern’s obituary in the Fort Record. I know he has gone through some rough times, but for him the suffering is over. Great news to see “he was a child of God” – that’s what you want to be when this life comes to an end – in the arms of God. We hurt for your family – will remember you in our prayers. So sorry for you all!
