When I was invited to move to Dermott and preach for the church of Christ there, one of the most delightful people we were ever to know was Mary. She was so kind to us when our son was born and had heart problems. Mary was so sweet to show special kindness to our young daughter Selinda to help her while we dealt with Kyle's illness. She is a treasured memory and we look forward to seeing her again in God's house.

Dear Perry Family,

We were so sad to hear of Mrs Perry’s passing. It makes our hearts full to know that she has joined James, Dorothy and L.D. again in the presence of God. What a reunion! She was such a dear, sweet lady and she will missed.
