Heart & 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 SERGEANT 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


  1. I LOVE these pictures of your grandpa. You're right the first couple of times I ever talked to him were pretty intimidating. He would call me to set up appointments to meet with the Stake President...
