I am sad to report the passing of my brother, Edward Larry Perkins, on Monday, January 3, 2005. He died unexpectedly of a heart attack. Born December 26, 1940, he was 64 years old. A small memorial service was held in Alvin, Texas last Saturday attended by immediate family and a few friends.

Larry was the son of Anna Lynn Daniel Perkins Peavy and Dallas Perkins both deceased. He was the grandson of Anna Martha Peavy and great grandson of William Barto Bracewell.

Larry will be remembered for his honesty, kindness and high moral fibre. He was charitable to family and strangers alike and saw the best in all people without syncism or judgment. The world will be a little less kind without him in it.
