I remember Perry from high school.  He could always make me smile and his smile would brighten a room.  He was filled with such kindness and always made others feel good.  Rest easy Perry!

My deepest sympathy to Perry’s family, friends, and coworkers. Perry was such a nice guy and there was no one who didn’t immediately like him when they met. My prayers for his soul to have peace and for his family and friends to find comfort that they were loved by a truly nice person. His famous smile was like a great hug, so genuine and warm. I hope that the good memories will help all of you through this very difficult time. 
Very sincerely,
