Vernon was my 1st cousin.

He was was the first of two sons born to Harry Vern PURDUE and Edna Joy CAPLE.

Vernon served in the U.S. Army during WWII as a S. Sgt. He was never married. Vernon, who liked to be called Phil, worked as a hair stylist in his mother's salon. He was a kind and gentle man.

Vernon died of a heart attack at the age of 52. Rest in peace cousin.

Merry Christmas my dearest "Guba", I miss you every day and will always remember your presence in my life. I found the note you left for Hilma in her receipe box after she passed on, now I have it with me. Love always and forever, until I see you again.
