Vernie Caudill was born December 31, 1907.  He was the son of Leander Caudill and Maryan Back
Caudill.  He passed from this life on May 7, 1974, making his stay on earth 66 years, 4 months and 7 days.
    Early in life he met and was married to Verna Dixon, on the 19th of December, 1927, to this union were
born 9 children.  One daughter Kathleen Caudill preceded him in death.  He leaves to mourn his passing, his
wife, Verna Dixon Caudill and his children: Geneva McKinney, Veneda Phillipps, Josephene Bell, Allen Caudill,
Kenneth Ray Caudill, Hansel Caudill, Russel Caudill, and Mary Lou Whitaker.  He also leaves one brother L.D.
Caudill, still living.  These brothers and sisters have preceded him in death:  Mattie Caudill, Curtiss Caudill,
Minta Toliver, Castle Caudill, Virgie Frazier, and Dixon Caudill.

    Sister Verna has given up a good husband, the children have given up a good daddy,, and I have given up a
good friend, and one that was so dear and close to me.  Vernie and I have talked so much, and he has told me
his experience so many times.  I have no doubt but that he is in Heaven today.  He received a hope in Christ
many years ago, and was a strong believer in the work of Christ and his Church. Sister Verna, I know your
home is lonesome now.  Pray on a little longer.  You can be with him soon.  Children, just a word to you all.  I
love you all very much.  I loved your daddy and mama, and I know you do too.  So, if you haven’t prayed, now
is the time before it is too late.
