A Message from the Family of Jack Perkins:
I and my family were overwhelmed by the honor guard, military service that you set up for my Father's burial. To say it was more than we had expected is a major understatement. We want to express our appreciation to you for working to set up this service and ask that you let each of the groups present of our deep appreciation for their efforts to recognize and honor my father's service to his country.
My cousin, who is also a veteran, commented that he had not seen such a large group for this type of service and was as the rest of us where overcome with emotion at the content and formality of the service performed. It was a very kind recognition of a fallen veteran but also for his family, a final good bye for our Father that helped with the healing necessary to have peace with our Father's passing. For all of that, Thank You!
