Kay, Steve, and Family,
Sending our love and prayers to you. We will truly miss seeing Vernell. We always enjoyed her greetings. She would give a smile and then inform us of the day’s activities. She always watched out for our mom. God bless her and all of you! Gary and Janice Nester.

I will never forget Vernell, she touched my heart when she was here with us at Westfield Manor. Vernell left us with so many great memories of the bus trips and her love for Cardinal Baseball. She was stubborn yet sweet. She came to all our activities and made many friends while she was here. She will forever be in my heart!
