I'm sorry about the passing of your brother. When I saw his name I thought it was my family. I've lived in Elk County since 2002. Hoping to return to Philipsburg. Our Vaughn Family stopped having reunions a few years ago. Too many young ones didn't want to attend. I miss my aunts and uncles very much.

So saddened by the loss of another family member. My condolences to all his family. I pray the Lord comforts you all.
