  3. Barbara J Perry says:

    We shared good times, bad times and butting head times. I admired you. After your divorce, you got your GED and became a Nurse. You had a difficult life as a single mom. You did your best to provide for your children In 2018 You, Sally and I shared the heartbreak of losing our last brother. I am thankful that we got to share some sisterly love together. I wish we would have taken the opportunity to do that more often in our younger years. I wish the last few years of your life would have given you less pain and more peace. I will miss our daily talks. Love always.

  4. Barb Perry says:

    So Sis, It was so very hard making it through your birthday. Remembering our little adventures was probably the only thing that got me through the day. Our Graceland trip, Cedar Point, Kings Island, Tupelo MS, Biloxi MS, New Orleans and the trips you made to Pensacola. I wish we would have had more. I love you and miss you every day.
