    To Lisa and the Perry Family, you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of loss of your mother. She was a friend to all who knew her and faithful in her love and service to the Lord. She always had a faithful pew at church and occupied it as long as she was able. She now is at rest without anymore suffering and pain in her new heavenly body. What a glad reunion day, when you will see her again for all of eternity.

    Aunt Barbara, your voice will always be in my mind telling  Lisa and myself to “please Lord,  let these kids be safe” I remember you speaking louder than usual because you never truly yelled. I heard this said to us many times growing up over the years as I’m sure when Lisa and I were together it was very stressful times.  But like you always would pray we WERE always safe. You told me the last time I had saw you that I reminded you of Aunt Betty because I was wearing my hair up in a bun. I just want you to know that the small pieces of advice and the sweet compliments you have gave me over the years have stayed with me. You have  the sweetest soul of any person I know and I’m going to miss you.   You will always be an important part of my growing up; learning between right & wrong. Love you always; your niece, Justie

    Aunt Barbara,
    We may not have spoke much but I definitely knew what was going on in your life from my Momma. She is going to miss you more than I can even imagine. You were her rock, I don’t think anyone will ever be able to be the kind of rock you have been for my Momma.  She loves you with every fiber and you were her big sister and she looked up to you and had to know you were home and full circle, just like YOU had to know Lisa and I were safe, she too had to know that you were safe. Well, now you are as safe as anyone of us will ever be up in heaven with Our savior Jesus and your beloved Carl, and among other family members… including my Daddy. Tell him I said “my finger ain’t broken, I turn out the lights now” Thank you for being the best example of how to live in honor of Christ. I’m going to try to be there for my mother as much as I possibly can, please look down on her and help to keep her safe.

    Mrs. Barbara Perry I will always remember the great memories with you and Big Lisa ( I named my daughter Liesa after Lisa). Mrs. Perry always kept me and Lisa in line during school and we ALWAYS went to church. I am sure you influence and won many people to the Lord than you realize. You have left a wonderful family here to carry on that example. I am honored to say I knew you and love you all.
