Queen Perry and I prayed together, laughed together, had conversations. She spoke very highly of her children and grandbabies. I had a deep respect for her. I met her at Whittier October 18, 2001. I was a NEW hire to Flint then. First time I met her she made me clear my pockets for the metal detector. I laughed and told her I worked here now . She laughed back and twinkled with her eyes- eyes of love- that I still needed to clear my pockets.
" Congratulations, baby!! We can never be too safe. You undertand?These are my kids here. I don't know you yet."
Queen Perry was the most honest, kind and most Godly person I know.
I came from the suburbs... she had a lot to teach me. We spoke the same language though- a language of love, hope and we spoke of God and family often.
My heart is heavy for the loss of such a fine and admirable person. However, I feel suck warmth and love and I KNEW HER LOVING CHRISTIAN SPIRIT. I KNOW that she is with her Ma and Dad and all the people she loved and lost in heaven making that an even more beautiful place.
I know I don't know you personally but from all of her aWesome, soul-driven, funny, kind but real stories --- you were loved, prayed for and cared about from the bottom of her heart.
She taught this suburban white girl more than 6 years of college ever did. I loved her. Thank you God and Jesus for giving me a chance to know this loving soul.
