As a young college student and best friend of Bernard, I was often in the home and car of Vernon and his lovely wife, Ruth. Vernon's kindness will never be forgotten. My deepest sympathy is extended to the family.

Thoughts and Prayers from the family of Harold Breckenridge. I remember visiting when we would go visit great granddaddy (Joseph Breckenridge) on the farm! I remember stopping and visiting the house right off the road.
