    My love and condolences go out to all of Perky’s family. She is now at peace and out of pain and I am sure was welcomed home by her parents, brothers and sister.

    No words can express how we feel at the loss of Perky.
    She was a member of our family and whenever a family member leaves us behind we can only feel sadness that she is no longer with us. She had suffered way too long but she always had such optimism in her outlook on life.
    Our prayers and sympathy to Gene and all of Perky’s family. We pray that God will keep her in His care. Peace to all who knew and loved her.
    Bob and Nancy Shilander
