Mrs. Perry was the BEST mother-in-law a girl could ever ask for! She loved me as a daughter. She continuously encourage me to be the best teacher, mother, and wife to her baby boy, Jerry. She loved Christin, Thomas, and Elizabeth beyond measures. I will miss her dearly, but I know she is laughing and singing in Heaven with God and Mr. Perry. God has received an awesome Angel! Love you Mrs. Perry!!!
