    Part 1 – to my baby brother, I cannot explain the pain and emptiness I feel since you left. I know it’s not for us to question why, and even if we had the answers I am not sure it would make sense. No sense can come from losing such a wonderful man, brother, father, son, uncle and friend.

  • Your Sis Diane Posted December 7, 2017 2:11 pm

    Part 2 – I will always regret never telling you enough how very much I love you! I can still hear your sweet deep voice in my ear and see that amazing smile on your face… I can see you chasing your nieces and nephews around the house just to hear them scream and laugh and hear you yelling at Mandy to get out from in front of the television. I can still hear you revving that engine in your truck every weekend until I finally walked over and begged you to blow it up. I can still feel your tight hugs especially on Thanksgiving day and I can still see the beautiful amazing pictures that you use to draw.

  • Your Sis Diane Posted December 7, 2017 2:12 pm

    Part 3 – What I can’t do is imagine this life without you in it. I thought I knew what heartache felt like, I thought I knew what pain was, I thought I knew what dark skies looked like and I thought I knew what a lonely soul was. I didn’t truly know any of these things until I was left to face a life without you in it. Why? Why didn’t I hold you tighter? Why didn’t I say I love you louder? Why didn’t I stare at your beautiful smile longer? Why didn’t I appreciate what an amazing man you are until it was too late?

  • Your Sis Diane Posted December 7, 2017 2:12 pm

    Part 4 – I will forever be sorry that I didn’t do all of these things and more. I can’t do any thing now to change it, but what I can do is to promise you now, that today and for as long as I live on this earth I will listen to voices deeper, I will hold everyone tighter, I will say I love you louder, I will watch beautiful smiles longer and I will truly appreciate long before it’s too late. I am so sorry my sweet baby brother that these lessons came to me far too late. I know you are watching over us now from heaven and I pray that you know how very sorry I am and how very much I have loved you, then, now and forever!!!! Sweet peace is now yours baby… Party hard and save a place for us. Oh and please put a good word in for our Bull Dawgs…GO DAWGS!!! I love you!!!

    Perry, I will miss your infectious smile & you ever willingness to lend a helping hand.
    Irma would have been a REAL bitch without yours & Michael’s persistence to keep my generator running!
    I will miss you & promise to be there for sweet Lindsay & Lofton!
    Love you!

    Part 1) Little over 15 years ago I ran into Perry Albritton in the racing world. I remember working on the cars behind Paul’s, there after a night of hard work, shooting bs about the racing world. Paul would run the guy’s off for family time. Perry & I would skip across the road to his place, we would talk about the night all over again.

  • James M. Carter Jr “JimBo” Posted December 8, 2017 11:10 pm

    Part 2) I had few years on Perry, being around him was like a spark. I wish I had his energy then, time past but when we ran into each other racing would be the subject line and how’s the kids? The moments would be short, but the memories would be long kept for another day. I pray for the Albritton Family this day for peace. I was blessed to have known Perry. We can take a moment to learn from this time of sadness. With all the technology today in communicating, sometimes its just best to stop by and say hello old friend. How have you been? We all have friends we have not talked with. We sometimes forget and we lose track.
    Lord I pray for the family and friends as we all try to get back on track. In your name Jesus Amen.

  • Steven & Rhonda Mullis Posted December 9, 2017 1:23 am

    We are deeply saddened and our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Perry was a great friend. Until we meet again.

  • Sheryl Schmidt Posted December 10, 2017 6:30 pm

    Many years my have passed, but you were always a great person. Smiles all the time. Until we meet again.

  • Virginia Dunleavy Posted December 12, 2017 4:21 pm
