Vern Gilman what can you say about a true angel on earth. He was an amazing husband; father, brother, uncle, grandpa and friend a truly, humble man.

To know him was to see what love truly was his love and devotion to his one and only love Alice the love he had and showed for his children and grandchildren whether they be blood or not always there for everyone rather it be a listening ear or a smart comment or a joke.
