She loved animals, especially all the cats she took care of over the many years. Pera enjoyed the outdoors especially gardening and growing beautiful flowers or even if it was just sitting on the porch admiring the hummingbirds and birds she would feed. Most importantly, she loved the Lord and we know we will see her again one day in heaven.
