I met Mr. Perez through his daughter Marisela Foley. I will always treasure the good happy moments my family and I spent with him. I will remember his easy smile and kindness. Mr. Perez shared with me his knowledge about gardening and nature. His most precious plants.
Peace be with his loving family. Love and prayers. Monica and family
