Bruce, Peggy and family.  So sorry to see that Perry has passed.  As Bruce will remember I met Perry in the late 70’s and was impressed with this friendly, successful businessman.  Bruce, on occasion, you have shared some nice details of Perry’s life.  Please let the wonderful memories of Perry sustain you in this time of grief.

To the Scott Family,
So sorry to hear of Perry’s passing.  He was good man, was always a conversationalist, and sold our family a few cars!  I know he cared very much for his family and I was proud to wear the “Scott VW” t-shirt playing softball.  May memories fill your hearts and bring smiles in this time of grieving.
