Emma Sue and David, we loved Von so deeply and always thought of him as "family". My life is much richer because of this man. Many hours spent laughing and crying over many years with Von will forever be in my heart. You were loved by so many my dear friend and heaven's band of merry tobacco men now has a ukulele player to entertain all of our sweet souls. God Bless you all! We love you!

Emma Sue I'm so,sorry. How I loved this man and how he taught me to love music has been a major point in my life. I spoke to him on Wednesday and he told me he wasn't up for a visit. Sure understand and he will,always be in my heart. I'm sitting here hold his ukulele as I write this. I can't remember a time I wasn't aware of Von or love him.
