Such a precious man. I wish I could have known him longer. I feel blessed to have known him at all. He always had a smile and kind words. What an inspiration he must have been to those the Lord put in his life. We have missed seeing him at church and so sad to know he won’t be back. The only blessing is knowing where he absolutely is and one day we will all be praising the Lord together again. May God rest your soul Mr. Perkins. We love you.
