Dear Perry Family,

I am a volunteer minister, and I reach out to those who have lost a loved one in death. Please accept my sincerest condolences due to the loss of Robert. Death is never an easy thing to deal with. That is why God promises that he "will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more." (Revelation 21:4)
