This morning I got several emails concerning the health and well-being of Rep. Perriello's father, Vito Perriello. Dr. Perriello suffered a stroke several days ago, and he is "fighting for his life." The prognosis apparently is not that good.
Through Tom's campaign, I have come to know Dr. Perriello well. He is a very kind and honorable man, dedicating much of his life to helping children, both in his practice as a pediatrician and as sports coach. His love is large and expansive, seen in how he interacts with everybody: his family, campaign staffers, volunteers, children, etc.
Please keep Vito Perriello, his wife Linda, Tom, and the rest of the Perriello family in your thoughts and prayers. If you are inclined, you can send the family an e-card, which will be printed out and delivered by the hospital.
