    We were very saddened to hear what a rough time you have been through. We have always held such high regards for you. I remember what a gentle person you were. I suppose you and Bill Koskovich are already hitting the fareways (golfing) in Heaven. God Speed, Perry!

    Dean & I extend our sympathy to all of you. You never saw Perry without a smile. When I worked at the elevator always enjoyed having him come across the scale. You have had a terrible year. Hopefully 2009 will be much better.
