Read more about Karen Perry's story...... click on "memoirs" above or go to blog.
Imagine a tragic plane crash in Arizona on Thanksgiving Eve.  Three beautiful young children and their father are killed and taken from this earth.   It happened to Karen's family in 2011.  Out of the ashes of the wreckage along with unimaginable loss and pain.....love and life still exist.  Wings of Life is born from this tragedy.

Please enjoy the memorial music videos compiled here of the Perry children.  They are forever in our hearts.

There will be a big event held at the Superstition Mountain Museum on Nov. 23rd 2014 (the 3rd anniversary of the accident.)  It will be a combination of: dedication of donated memorial bench, speech, unveiling of planned memorial sculpture being placed there, introduction to my book "Angels 3" (due out in Jan 2015) and fundraiser for Wings of Life [and sculpture].

 

WINGS OF LIFE MISSION STATEMENT

 

Wings of Life is a faith based, non-profit organization, dedicated to embracing the unique needs of the children in our community.   Children today are faced with a multitude of challenges and choices.  We strive to offer all that we can to affect them in a positive way by providing physical assistance, instruction, and activities that teach life skills in a Christ- centered environment.

 

“Those who are sad now are happy.  Because God Will Comfort them…..Those who want to do right more than anything else are happy, because God will fully satisfy them.  Let us think about each other and help each other to show love and do good deeds.  There are times when we are called to give money to people who will never say thanks, to forgive those who won’t forgive us, to come early and stay late when no one else notices.  Lift up our eyes Father, that we might see our world as you see it.  Help us respond as you respond to the hurts around us.”  ~ Max Lucado, God’s Inspirational Promise Book.

I want to speak from the heart for a moment on the Superstition plane crash. Today the NTSB issued its final report. That you will get on the news. Why did this story become such a personal crusade for me? It's one of those stories that literally brought me to tears. Karen Perry lost all of her children in that crash. It happened on Thanksgiving Eve 2011. A night many of us were focused on gathering with family. At that same moment, Karen was losing hers. Like all of you, I was devastated by the cruel loss. We have 3 children roughly the age of Karen's kids. It just hit me like few stories have. I kept thinking - that could have been us. It was too close, too personal. Getting to know Karen over these 2 years, her strength has been an inspiration. Every time I see the Superstitions, I think about it. And how life can turn in a moment. It still haunts me...
