My condolences to your family on the passing of Vernell. Vernell was a friend from the Class of 1958 at South Side High School, Bee Branch, AR. She attended many of our annual class reunions. Was always happy to see her and enjoyed visiting with her and learning about her life and family. From the pictures I have seen here I can see she had a beautiful family. Prayers for all.
