    I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. There is a very comforting scripture found at Isaiah 25:8. It says that soon Jehovah will swallow up death forever and that he will wipe away all of the tears. So we can look forward to a time when death will be done away with forever. I hope that this scripture can bring some comfort during this time.

    I wish to express my deepest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he(GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.

    Mrs. Perry was such a genuine, caring, faithful educator. Serving as her principal was a joy because Mrs. Perry and I developed a respectful, supportive relationship. We encouraged each other to push forward!! Teaching was her passion and she possessed a Christlike demeanor with staff, students, parents, and community members. She was a woman of faith and she loved her students, her family, and her puppy. Mrs. Perry will always have a special place in my heart!❤️

    I have had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Perry for the last 3 years at Winstead Elementary School. She was definitely a sweet and lovely person. Always had an encouraging word for me. I was her diva girl. That’s what she called me. We both loved hair and I can remember her ordering her last wig and coming to work asking me what did I think. Of course she was my diva friend and she wore it well. I will truly miss her and her sweet humble spirit. Our prayers are with the Perry Family. May God continue to wrap his loving arms around you all. The Kirby Family

God cares for those with a broken heart; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!

    My heartfelt sympathy to the family of Mrs. Beryl Holder Perry. Losing a love one to death is never easy, but you do have a helper. Jehovah at Psalms 55:22 invites you to 'throw your burden on him and he will sustain you.' I hope you are comforted by his words. When time permits please read Revelations 21: 3-5 where he promises that the time is coming when death will be no more.🙏
