It is with great sorrow that I have to add this entry... - Chris Petrell (Vern's Grandson)
Toler, Vern E.
Vern was born on 2 March 1925, and passed away between 0100 and 0300 on 6 MAY 2003 in Mountlake Terrace, WA (near Seattle). He was diagnosed with liver cancer on 4 APRIL.  On 7 APR he moved into his cousins house in MountLake Terrace so he would be able to get family care. On 9 APRIL the doctor said "get your family up here" because he had found that the cancer was also in his lungs, and bowels. At that point Hospice was also called, and all of us in the family went up to say our good-bye's.  Vern's health rapidly declined until about 3 MAY when he was no longer able to speak, and more or less was slipping into a coma.  Services for Vern will be held at Arlington National Cemetery on 29 MAY 2003 at the Arlington Chapel at 15:00 hrs.  Vern was the webmaster for all the pages under
