    Want to express our condolences . Have known Mary and Paul Perkins in the ministry and like other clergy, spouses and laypeople in the WNCC/ United Methodist Church, we truly respect them and value their friendship. Can tell the strong faith of Mrs. Ingram has had a tremendous influence on the family. For one whose life was a shining example of God's grace and glory, we give thanks for her journey on this earth.
