Heart and Soldier - Vernie Perkins
This is Vernie....my Grandpa. He has a very thick Southern accent, and calls me his baby doll:). When you first meet my grandfather, being that he is a former Master Drill Sargent he might intimidate you a bit. But his bark is worse than his bite. He actually has one of the hugest hearts in the world! He loves giving to others. He served his country and is a WWII Veteran ...he met my grandma during the war, who also served. He gives his heart and soul to his family, friends and neighbors. I think you might even say he is a local Celeb in the town of North Ogden. He is one of my HEROS. He helped raise me, bought me my first car, paid my way through College, really... I just can't say enough. I am glad he is not just some old guy I see now and then... I am lucky we are great friends! He wanted me to take his picture...so here you go Vernie! I love you!
