I would like to say a little message about how I knew this wonderful man. I
met him through his great family and he used to invite me to his pool so we
can go swimming. We used to tease each other a lot and had fun doing it.
Those are the times I remember about him and will not be forgotten. R.I.P.

My sympathy to the family of Verlin. He will be missed as I recall the smile he
always had and the warm friendship he always extended. I'm sorry that I will
not be unable to extend this personally, as I will be assisting my own ailing
father out of state. Please know that my heart and prayers are with you.
