Mike I had the pleasure of meeting your father and sister today as they were doing their rounds knocking on doors for a signature as your father is running for the 2016 legislative district 6, although I have never met you, I feel it was a sign as I too have husband and son on the job and (NYPD) and another on the next list and your dad gave some good advise as he shook my sons hand. You must be proud as your father sings your name and knows you are in a better place RIP From the Lovera Family

Hey Pal, thinking of you today. I miss you bro. I've had the pleasure of working along side Mike, like so many of us had. He was a true warrior with a personality larger than life. He would never say no to anyone who needed his help. You thanked the Lord that Mike was on the street any given day because you knew he'd find a way to be there for you. There's days I still speak to him asking to help me get through it safely. Thank you Mike for your friendship, courage, enthusiasm, dedication and sacrifice. RIP -

I was just thinking how much we miss all of our fallen brothers. Every day more of us are being hurt and killed. Mike worked for me and I worked with him. He was the 1%. You always wished you had a Squad of Perry's. We miss you.

Mike was one of the most fun loving and toughest cops that I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He would give you the shirt off his back, and you knew that when you worked with him, he had yours.

My spouse suffered a cardiac arrest after a 3 mile jog, while on the job, then survived in a coma for 33 months and 2 days before having the final fatal one. Our daughter was 13. He was 41. I walk in your shoes. I feel your pain. And my heart is weeping for you and the girls.

ALWAYS REMEMBER that Det. Perry was a true hero, sacrificing self to "serve and protect" others. And know that on those darkest of days, I promise you that God is there with arms wide open. He will lift you up when you think it impossible to take the next breath or the next step. Fall into those arms with all the anger, misery, tears, resentment,.....He is a big guy and can handle it.

Never forget that strangers like me will continue praying for you for months and years to come. The pain will never go away, but the frequency lessens. You will survive and it will be okay. God bless you.

Detective Perry, your years of service with the DEPPD and WPPD will never be forgotten, thank you. To the family, friends and co-workers of Detective Perry, my most sincere of condolences. Though I know words often ring hollow in times like this please rest easy in knowing that Detective Perry died aiding in the bettering of our society and we as a society are a little less safe without you out her guarding us.
