Aaron Perry

PerryA.P. has left the building.

On January 24, 2015, Aaron Brice Perry escaped the confines of this natural world, ditching a broken and tired body for his new, forever suit and assumed his position in the Great Choir where all of heaven resounds with the voice of another warrior.

Aaron was our piece of heaven here on earth:  the golden strand intricately woven into the fabric of the lives of all who knew him.

The weaving is done, the shuttles are still but the tapestry left behind is alive with love and life and joy.  Aaron, your beauty continues on as we, your family, exclaim, “Free at last.  Free at last.  Thank God Almighty, you are free at last!”

Those left to cherish the journey are:

James and Christina Perry.  Jacob and Karissa of Bangs

Arvid and Susan Koopmann of Brownwood

Samantha Weeks of Dallas

A memorial and tree planting will be held at the Perry Estate in Bangs, Texas at a later date.
