Warm Memories of Dr. Vernon Purdy
An old friend passed away on December 5th. Dr. Vernon Purdy had a profound impact on my life and I will miss him. I found his obituary here in the archives of the Springfield News-Leader. Please pray for his family, particularly his wife Naomi and his daughter Carissa and son Caleb. He was only 48 years old. The obituary did not mention a cause of death. I learned so much about the horizons of faith from Dr. Purdy. His kindness, friendship, and encouragement demonstrated a true walk of faith to me. Vernon Purdy joins the cloud of witnesses across time. Thanks Old Friend.
