I worked with Vern and his brother, Bob, many years back just prior to when Vern was called on his mission. The Osmonds are wonderful people who left an indelible mark on my life. So sorry to read of his passing, and my deepest sympathies go out to his family and loved ones.

We were so sorry to hear of Vern's passing. It was such a privilege to work with him on the Thurs AM Logan Temple shift. He became an instant friend to both Darlene and me. He was one of those who could make you feel like his best friend whenever he was around you. We are so grateful that we ran into him at Natural Grocers toward the end of May. That is when we learned of his cancer and of his need to be released from his temple service. He served so well. He has been, and will continue to missed on our shift. We loved him and we love you Sister Osmond and miss seeing you in the temple. We had the opportunity to view the video tribute. What a beautiful family you have. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you all.
