I will never forget Perry as a person and as a patient. He and I grew very close during his visit to the Roudebush VAMC pharmacy. He and I could communicate very well with his unusual style which some could not. I will remember his stories of being in the Rangers(the good and bad meories he shared with me). So long friend- some day we will meet again and be able to relive the good times we had.
