                            My brother and sister grew up with Vernon's children Brian, Nicole and Quinn. I was priviledged to be on Vernon's email list. Through his invitation, I danced in the Otoe-Missouria Eloska.

                            He was one of the Icons of straight dancing.

                            RIP VERNON.
