We will all miss Aunt Sally dearly, here in California. We know Aunt Sally may be gone, but we can still talk to her, cause we know she’s listening. We send our Condolences to All of the Beautiful Perry Families and Friends who were so lucky to be part of such an amazing woman’s life. Below, a poem I wrote...

“I’m Listening”

Talk to me; I’m listening.
We’re never far apart.
Just listen to the whispers,
deep within my heart.
If you could see what I see,
you’d be happy that I’m free.
I love it here; it’s beautiful.
Just you wait and see.

It’s calm.
It’s bright.
It’s remarkable.

Eternity is unbelievable.
Just you wait and see.

When the skies open up, you’ll see just what I mean,
and be a witness, to what I’ve seen.
Do not doubt,
That the HEAVENS ARE SO GRAND-
Just know, I’ll be here smiling; reaching for your hand.

I promise, you’re gonna love it here.

Talk to me; I’m listening.
We’re never far apart.
Just listen to the whispers,
deep within your heart.
