Mr. Perry's daughter Julie and I were friends when we took ballet together as young girls. Our parents sometimes alternated drop-offs and pick-ups to ballet class, and Mr. Perry had his turn as well! I remember what a nice man he was when he picked us up--- a smile for everybody and a little conversation for the ride home! I know the pain of losing my own parents and ache for Julie and Jill. Regardless of our ages, when it comes to our mamas and daddies, we are all still young children inside. Godspeed, Mr. Perry. I remember you from so long ago. And love to you, Julie and Jill.

To all family and friends, I am sorry for your loss. Difficult times such as these are made better when we consider Jehovah's comforting words found in the Bible.1 Corinthians 15:26 helps comfort us in knowing that God's Kingdom will bring death to it's end. This is just one of many comforting promises that Jehovah will fulfill. I hope this brings you some comfort during this difficult time.
