A gentle man with a gentle smile is how I will always remember Vern. A teacher and mentor to his family ....a wise man indeed. Thoughts & prayers are with his family. Hold those memories deep in your heart. God bless.
Going to miss Vern not stopping by the farm. He enjoyed talking about the Pralle home place and had lots of good old stories to tell.Recently he had told me he plowed 9 acres south of the place along the road, setting on his Grandpa's lap.He was 4 years old. Vern was a good role model in the Community. He certainly was not a quitter. His Grandson's as well as all of us know that.
Kathy, Kevin, Charlane, Mike and Doug, our thoughts and prayers go out to you, .
Always had a good time visiting with vernon...! Great guy...Sorry to hear of his passing!
