I am saddened about the passing of my brother-in-law
Deon. He always had a smile
on his face. My sisterJoyce and
him were married 62 years. He
accepted Jesus and I'm sure he is with my mother Vivian Vaughn and Father Walter Vaughn Sr. in
a beautiful place. And I'm sure one day there will be a wonderful
family reunion.
