Memories & Candles
Mr. Perry was such sunshine to me and all the staff at Bridgewater. We all really cared about him and he will truly be missed. We have people routinely in and out of our building, but Tom Perry was one of a kind.
Each day, he used to wait for me to come it to work. He would sit in the sliver of sunshine he could find in the rotunda and ask if I had come it. He started calling

Our deepest sympathy to your family. My family and I lived next door to Tom when he lived in Whitestown. Tom was a great neighbor and friend. If we needed anything he was always there. Tom often came over to swim in our pool when it was really hot outside. I remember his dog Amber and how close they were. The last time I remember seeing Tom was working at Wal-mart as a greeter. He will be missed. My parents John and Rose Andrews and my two sisters Mindy and Mary and myself Leslie White.

I always enjoyed talking with your dad. He was an interesting man who was always ready with a smile or laugh, always wanted to be helpful to others here at Bridgewater, and took pride in being our first patient at the facility. He was a fixture over the first year, always sitting in the entry to greet guests and offer a kind word. The building seems emptier with his passing and we will miss him here. Please take care of yourselves and know he was cared for.

You're our number 1, and always will be. You're deeply missed around here at Bridgewater. It's odd not to see you in the front entrance near the PT gym greeting visitors, or hearing you whistle down the hall. I'll miss our conversations and having you around. I'll remember movies in our theater; your directness, matter of fact comments; bright smile; your helping hand, and the appreciation you expressed with the many events we shared together. We'll cherish all those

I will always remember Tom's kindness from the years when we both lived in Whitestown and attended the Whitestown Baptist church. He was a wonderful gentleman and a true friend, always offering his help to anyone who needed it. I will always remember him with fondness.

You looked so "at peace" Wednesday morning, and I realized you are finally "home", where you can, once again, be happy. Please tell Grandma and Grandpa that I am thinking about them. Please watch over us as we continue with our daily struggles in this world. I look forward to seeing you again in the afterlife. Enjoy your new life and know that I LOVE YOU, so very much!
