Dear Beeson family,
We are so sorry to learn of Verlin's death. He certainly had a long, productive life. We remember dancing to his music when dating.....way back in the 1950s. We'll miss him at the veterans day program at the school. Always enjoyed chatting with him.
Thinking of you at this sad time...Jerry and Phyllis Mattheis
