I got the word late last evening of a terrible tradgedy that struck 2 of my friends, Vern and Linda Stanley. They were on the way to visit his parents in Washington state, riding their new motorcycle when Vern lost control of the bike and was hit head on by an on-coming pick up truck. They were pronounced dead at the scene. Vern and Linda were the kindest, most whole hearted people I've met in a very long time. They would light up a room and Vern would give you the shirt off his back no questions asked. Married only a couple of years these two were meant to be together forever. Vern and Linda please know that we all love you and will miss your laughter and love that you gave so freely. Here's a little poem for you...
My friend who I remember being the best
A friend in the good and bad
My friend who was always there
Even if he wasn’t really there
A friend who help me up when I was down
A friend I'm not a shamed of
My friend who no more I can see
A friend who already passed away
My friend who might not be here
But still present in my heart
My friend who I remember till the end
As my friend who was always there.
