No Condolences for “SORGE Vernon”

    Hello Francine,
    It is with great sorrow, that I give you my thoughts. I heard of Vern’s sickness and then his recent passing from my sister-in-law, Marie-Helene. I know too well of what you are enduring – my dad too had died at such a young age of cancer.

    When these people we hold so dear seem indestructable, it is hard to belive that we are not always as strong as we like to think. I thought my dad would survive his cancer, but little did I know what he was going through and now I know, now that we too, are at that age. From what I know about Vernon, I believe he led a very fulfilling life and that is a good thing. I know he will be missed.

    Love always,
    Randy Hochstein

    To the family and friends of Vernon, in this time of grief please accept our sincere condolences. How comforting it is to know that God shares our sorrow, our pain. Anything that distresses us distresses him(isaiah63:3). Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
