    To the Perkins Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about Mom’s passing. I lived in the second to last home on Chase that backed up to your yard. I was friends with Starr during High School. I was facebook friends with her and all of a sudden she disappeared off of facebook. Please let her know, I am thinking of her and your family.
