  1. Light of a Clear Blue Morning

    What a brilliant, lovely, gentle light Mrs. Perkins was. It was my great fortune and privilege to work with her at Peebles, and to attend FBC with her for many years. Prayers for all her loved ones- that their treasured memories of her will bring a measure of the peace, joy, strength and laughter that she would wish for them. I will miss her so much- but rejoice that she is now part of a wonderful reunion in Heaven.

  2. To Nancy and the rest of the family, our thoughts and prayers go out to you during this sad time. You Mom was a super nice lady and will be missed by all who knew her. She will continue to live on through the love and memories of her family.

  3. Deepest Sympathy

    I am so sad for her family, but so happy for Estelle because I know she is at peace at last and is rejoicing in Heaven with her loved ones gone on before and her Lord and Savior. She was one of the nicest and sweetest ladies on this earth. It was my pleasure to be her friend and to know and love all of her family. May God go with each of you in the months ahead without her. Lots of love from my home to yours. Nanny B
