Congratulations to GCI-USA Pastor Steve Schantz (pictured at left) and his wife Carol. The couple who live in Florida, became first-time grandparents on February 23 when their daughter Briana (wife of Vern Perry) gave birth to Vernon Irving Perry V. Baby Vernon weighed in at 7 lbs and was 20 inches long at birth. Everyone is healthy, happy, and thankful! Here’s a picture of the proud mom and dad with their new baby boy:
