Condolence Book

"Ashley, Kim, and Marcie,

So sorry to learn of your father's passing. I'll never forget Harry. He gave me opportunities at the start of my career that few young women attorneys were offered. May his memory always be a blessing. "

"Dear Marcie, Kim and Ashley,
I was truly saddened to learn of your father's passing. I have many fond memories of your dad and owe him a true debt of gratitude for my first real job at Perlis. Thinking of you all at this time."

Peter J Lund, MD | Lookout Mtn, TN

"I will miss Harry. He was always so good to me. Back when I smoked, we would stand out on Susan and Harry's deck, smoking and talking politics. We told jokes and made each other laugh. I will miss that. I am so sorry for your loss, Susan. I never met Harry's children, but please accept my condolences for the loss of your father."
Susan Kittrell | Little Rock, AR
