Michael Terrell Perry, son of Willene Nelson and Theodore Lee and grandson of the late Johnnie and Lillie Mae Perry of Ludowici, entered into rest on Saturday, July 6, 2013, in Cordele from complications in automobile accident. At the age of 19 Michael had become a quadriplegic.
Michael was a resident of Long County and attended the Long County Schools.
Michael accepted Jesus as his personal savior under the ministry of the late Elder Paul Stevens. Michael did not let the injuries from the automobile accident 23 years ago dim his beautifully smile. Michel loved the Lord and was a joyful blessing to the residents and staff at the Pine Hill Nursing Center in Cordele. Michael did not allow his injuries to deter him from serving and worshipping God. Michael was the miracle preacher. He loved the people. Dearest to his heart was his mother.
2 Timothy 4:6, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."
