  5. Perry...... I've read 20 years of your thoughts and memories of historical and non-historical events in chat rooms, discussion groups, articles, blogs, on-line essays, our research projects, and in our personal correspondence and texts. Like a fine wine, you only improve with age, dearest friend. We've visited and continue to visit many of the places you write about. Thanks for sharing with me and everyone one else whose lives you've touched over the years with your words. THE MANASSAS BELLE
