My thoughts and prayers are with you Kathy and family, and where do I even start about this wonderful guy Verlin, well I have got the pleasure of being able to know Verlin and his wonderful family over the past few years and I can say how cherished I am of knowing all of you,,as a caregiver we are there to care for others loved ones like they were our own and I can honestly say I always thought of Verlin as one of my own, he was such a hard worker always working outside, I remember getting him a carwash scrubber and he scrubbed the whole sidewalks, also found him a hoagie to vacuum the rugs, what a hard working man he was, and a dancer wow did he show us some moves, and his smile would just brighten up any room, I could go on and on but I will forever hold all the memories I have in my heart forever.
Rest in paradise Verlin
