Two weeks ago we held a small party in memory of Vernie. His PJ friends came, so did a few of their parents. Since we moved into our house 21 years ago (gosh has it been that long?) we hardly had any parties like this. Well things have changed.
I will write less and let the pictures tell more.
We shared Vern's baby and pictures from his growing up years...
Played Vern's baby videos - To us he was the cutest baby on the planet (Pic taken by Chanelle)
That's me holding Vern when he wanted to rollerskate (when he was about 3 - 1995) (Video) (Pic taken by Chanelle)
We gave some of his 'famous' clothes to his mates (There was abit of a cat-fight for some of his favourite clothes)
Yvonne with Vern's blue "Osaka No 3" tshirt
Yi CHing in Vern's "CHinese Character Cap" and holding his brown tshirt. Zoe holding up Vern's "Tulen Patrol" tee and Julian wears Vern's skull bermudas.

Well – among the tear jerking moments (watching Vern’s videos) – we had a great time.
