    My fondest memory of my brother, Perry, is from our childhood when we lived on the banks of Ash Creek in east Dallas. We had our own enchanted forest where I followed him as he hunted big crawdads and snakes and I hunted baby crawdads and crystal rocks. We had so much freedom and fun and spent so many happy days there.

    Will always remember with joy being able to tag along with y’all to my first-ever concert… THE BOSS was coming and Perry & Marsha let me go with Jen. A great time was had by all. Warm kindness and making an awkward kid feel like part of the family was what Perry was good at. Sorry for your loss, Marsha-Jen-Kim-and-kids. He was loved.

    It was my honor to be part of Perry’s extended family as he was my son’s father-in-law. He was a good and decent man whose dedication to his family was extraordinary. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. My deepest condolences go out to his family and friends. May they be comforted by memories of precious times with Perry as they face life without him.

    Many of my fondest memories about Dad involve cars. He taught me to drive and parallel park with the utmost patience in the Monte Carlo that was a giant blue beast of a car. He bought and restored the most amazing car I’ve ever had for my 16th birthday. I loved my 1965 Ford Mustang especially because Dad made it perfect for me. He also made me keep it clean and wash it often which I’m sure I didn’t always do with the best attitude. He helped me car shop for the first car I purchased myself post-college. He helped negotiate a price I could afford and then made the dealership throw in a set of floor mats for “free”. He would always park his car as far away from other cars as possible and in a corner spot if he could – which I hated growing up because we had to walk farther but I don’t think he ever in his life had a car with a door ding. Later in my life, he would always make sure my car windshield was clean, and that I left with a full tank of gas when I came to visit. Even on my last trip to see him a few weeks ago when he wasn’t feeling well, he got outside on a stool and cleaned my windshield. I wanted to do it myself, but he insisted. He also tried to get me to stop to get gas so he could pay, but we agreed that he could do this next time. I was so lucky to have him for my Dad. I always felt safe and cared for. I love him so much and will miss him terribly.

    Being invited on family outings with Kim and the Lamberts was one of the best parts of my childhood. Mr. Lambert was a gentle but strong soul; never a sharp word and always a sparkle in his eye. He and Mrs. Lambert were a great team, and them sharing that family time with me was such a blessing. It was a joy to see them again after many years and have them meet my own teenage son. I know he will be dearly missed. May all the good memories live on forever. Sending you my heartfelt prayers and deepest condolences.

    We were neighbors to Perry and Marsha for many years, but moved away a few years ago. Perry always set the bar high for the perfect yard. Jack says that Perry was always his go-to guy when he needed yard advice. Even today, he thinks what would Perry do when he has a lawn problem. Perry was such a nice guy. RIP Perry.

    Went deep sea fishing with Perry and he hooked something HUGE. His pole was bent all the way over and he could hardly hang on. I will never forgot his look on his face, pure joy and excitement. Unfortunately we will never know what he hooked because whatever it was bent the hook straight and eventually got off. Another great memory was playing golf and literally walking around elk that was hanging out on the fairways in Estes Park. Perry did not play, he just came along with me so I was not playing alone. I was so lucky to call him my Father-In-Law and I will truly miss Perry.
