Jody Perry was a much loved and faithful member of Milton First United Methodist. I have fond memories of sitting in a pew behind she and her son Ron over these last years. Thanks for bringing her Ron. She will not be forgotten by our church. I visited with her the at Sandy Ridge the Wednesday before she passed and we watched the squirrels from the glass door on the south end. She said she was quite familiar with those those squirrels. Bless you Jody and Heaven is a brighter place with you and your beautiful smile. - Paul R. Green
