Vernon Garrison was one of most kind and caring man i could have known. Along with his wife and best friend Wanda welcomed me into their home graciously and brought me to know the Lord as my savior and comforter that remains with me to this day. Vernon was a true patriot loved his country and devoted his life to be a true blessing and devoted member to his church.
