    RIP Chris Perry, founder of Artillian

    Chris Perry, founder of Artillian, lost his second fight with Ewing's Sarcoma this morning at 2:00am. Very few knew that Chris had beat this disease once in his early 20's, but a bout 2 years ago it returned with a vengeance. He stayed strong for his wife, friends and family, and for two years he tried so many different treatments and clinical trials but ultimately he just could not beat it a second time.


    Chris was a great friend, mentor, and teacher to me, more than I can describe in words here, I will miss him dearly. I can't provide any more details at this time, and I can't continue to type about this either right now. He's probably yelling at me now for getting choked up and making a big deal over him LOL


    RIP my friend, you fought a good fight!
