Patrice and entire Perry family. I am so sorry to read about the passing of your mom. I used to stop by to visit her a few years ago when I was doing mobile work up north. She always had a smile on her face and said she remembered me. I'm sure she is happy to be with your dad again in heaven. Prayers for your entire family.

So sorry for your family's loss--- I didn't remember that she was a registered nurse. She'll be in good company up there in heaven. My condolences for your entire family.

To all her loved ones, I knew Antoinette for only one month while I recuperated from a cracked vertabrae. I was placed straight across from her at the dining table and during that month she was one of the few who were ''easy smilers". I placed the table flower arrangement to face her at each meal and she would smile in appreciation. I grew fond of her constant positive attitude. She is missed by all who knew her. God bless her large family and give them comfort.

Mary Regina & Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was such a nice woman. I remember her from when she would visit Joe at Mt.Rest. May the memories that mean the most live forever in your hearts.

Aunt Toni
Well you were an important part of our childhood. In fact you were my role model ... a visiting nurse.... when I was about 9 years old. After 40 yrs in nursing I can look back to your influence on me during those impressionable years. I also remember such good food and our cokes at night, and our walks forever with the children to Nay Aug Park, and taking down frozen stiff diapers off that clothesline on the back porch. I felt so important when you let me hold Patrice at 3 days old!
My condolences to the whole family but what a wonderful life !

Such a kind and selfless person---I spent many hours at Nay Aug Park with her and kids when growing up. She was a ball of energy! Have a good journey, Aunt Toni, to peace and rest, with Uncle John, Joseph, and Tommy.
