Mary and family, we are so very sorry to hear of Vernon's passing. Greg nor I knew he was gone until a little while ago. Greg and his dad worked with him through his quarry for almost the entire time he was open. I know that Allan and Toni were friends for many years, as was Greg. He will be missed.

Mary and family Mike and I are so sorry for your loss. He was truly a good person and fun to be around. He will be missed by all that were lucky enough to know him.
