Onnolee and I would like to extend our condolences to my aunt Virginia and all my cousins. We are thinking of you both this evening and what will be a difficult day tomorrow. Notwithstanding the distance and the passage of time from the 10th line, I will always remember uncle Laverne as having lived a full, useful and productive life.

To the Family of Laverne,

Such a fine gentleman, certainly was a pleasure knowing him over the past years. Wayne knew him the best of all of us, and they are probably chatting it up together, Laverne bragging about his family and Wayne about his horses. Our condolences, the age, the circumstances of his passing do sadden the ones left behind. Thinking of you all at this time.

Elsbeth, Heath, Blyth McCormick. Tracey Sitzes and Beth McGill
