    Dear Bev and family,
    I was so very sorry to hear today that Vern has passed away. My sincere condolences to you all. Vern was a lovely man with a good sense of humour. I have fond memories of Phil taking me out to visit you in the highlands and having a good cup of tea with goats milk. Please know that my thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
    Love, Annlyn Lambrick
