I wish I could have seen and known Perry and his family these past 50 years.
Its been right about that long since I have seen him, when we were
teenagers. I pray God's love will comfort his family during this time.

I am sorry for your loss. Fully believe, as the Bible teaches, that God will
restore paradise conditions to the earth, and that he longs to bring back to
life on earth those who have died. (Job 14:14,15; John 5:28,29)
