To Vern, in memorium

I have known the late Vern Anderson and his wife, Eleanor, since we were in high school and would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to them.

I have known the late Vern Anderson and his wife, Eleanor, since we were in high school and would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to them. They worked together for 50 years to make their dairy in Buckley a success and were an asset to the community.

It is sad to see their business dissolved, but before his passing Vern advised Eleanor to hold a dispersal sale for the cows, to sell all the equipment and retire.

It was a difficult decision, but at almost 82 years of age, it is time.

They made many business and personal friends during the 50 years and I hope all of you will support Eleanor and remain in touch with her from time to time.
