Celebrating the life of Vernon G. Verstraete
Thank you for signing Vernon G. Verstraete's Guestbook
Uncle Vern as I called him was really not my uncle. I remember as a child how traumatic this was when I actually found out this information; however, for 55 years I have called him uncle so to me he was family. I have some wonderful memories of uncle Vern. One of my favorites took place in their home in Midland Park. Uncle Vern put on the music for the Disney light parade. He took a broom and used it as a baton like he was the parade master and we were all marching and dancing around the dining room table. I will miss you uncle Vern, especially your laugh and your smile.
