Extending our heartfelt sympathies to all of the family. It was our honor and pleasure to get to know Perk through our grandson-in-law Justin Paschal. What a great and wonderful person he was and such a joy to be around. I know he will be greatly missed here but received with open arms in heaven. Marilyn, I know how much you loved and cared for your father and how you and Justin and all of the family looked up to and respected him. What a tribute to Perk to be so loved and honored by all of you. Praying for peace and comfort for you now and in the days ahead.
