Perry Don was a good man, and a great neighbor for at least ten years.He would've given the shirt off his back,if you needed it. I recall several times if my car was broke down,he would figure out the oroblem and fix it for me.
I also have a special memory of when Perry Don and Chasity came over for a social call.we were chatting and listening to music.Perry Don got up from his chair,and began to dance ,He was dressed quite spiffy that day. Wearing a pair of Chachi shorts,and a very colorful pair of Argille docs! He began his little dance with kicking his left foot out and then up ,with a quick snap of his finger at the same time.But the funniest part of the dance was when he would make this sound with his mouth,like you would make when getting a a horse to take off runniing ..We were laughing so hard,that made Chasity slide right off her seat.We were literally Rolling On The Floor Laughing! I will truly miss this Wonderful, beautiful Man! I Love you Perry Don!
