Perry and I met many years ago when we were both young in the ministry. We enjoyed a close friendship thought some 45 years. He was the epitome of a Christian gentleman and pastor. As my mother use to say about dear friends... "He was one of the good ones and shall be deeply missed." Good night Perry! See you around the throne in heaven!
