I first met Perry when I learned that he went to thr same church as I do. First Baptist Church of Lake Saint Louis. He was a sweet man. Always polite.

Carol- Cathy and Cheryl-and grandchildren-I am so sorry of your loss-however we all know he is now without pain. Perry and I always had fun teasing each other. He was a great painter, wood carver, a man of many talents. I think he tried a little bit of everything in his lifetime!! He will be missed by you all and I really wish I could have come for his funeral, but in a way I'd like to remember him like the last time I saw him, healthy, laughing and talking-he loved to talk. My thoughts, love and prayers are with you--Jane
