My cousin. I loved sleeping over at Aunt Dorothy’s. Vernon was a few years older than I. I remember 11 – 12 years old I was. Vernon was older, helping him clean his wheels on his car as he was going out later, eating pizza a night. Eating cold pizza in the morning was new to me! I loved him!  R.I.P Leilani née Hargrave Marchand
