    Daddy I don’t know where to begin to describe how much we will miss you. I keep thinking that’s it’s just a bad dream and you’ll be sitting at the kitchen table like you always are. You were the best Daddy anyone could ever have been blessed with. Give my girls a kiss when you see them. I love you. Xoxo

    So very sorry for the loss of your Dad. He must have been very proud of the family he and his wife Marie had. I don’t know all the Perry children, but the ones I do know are very nice people. That is a reflection of good parents. Think of all the special times you shared together to help get you through this difficult time. A strong family brings great support at times like these.

Send your condolences.
