Doctor Perttula helped me a lot over years with my depression. I very much appreciated his help so, yesterday going for my appointment I was shocked to discover this terribly loss. All my sincere condolences to the family and friends.
Diane and family
My deepest condolences to you and your children and grandchildren. I was shocked and very saddened by the news of Dr. Pertulla's passing. He was a wonderful person. May your memories of his kindness comfort you in the days ahead. He will be truly missed.
To the Perttula family, Dianne and his beloved children, my deepest sympathies at the loss of this wonderful man. He has been my rock for over 25 years. Got me through the good times and bad. I hope you know he will be missed by so many who cherished him. I’m so sad to hear of his sudden passing. May you always know you have a wonderful guardian angel watching over you all. RIP Dr. Pertulla you will be so missed. Thank you for all you did for me.
What immediately comes to my mind is what a good person Dr. Perttula was. He loved his family. He looked at the bright side of life. He had a great smile. He will truly be missed by many. My deepest condolences to Diane and family.
May I please send my most sincere condolences to Dr. Perttula's dear wife, Dianne, and to Dr. Perttula's entire, beautiful family. His genuine love for all his children and grandchildren always came out in his cheerful stories. He was always quick to share a joke or give a well deserved word of praise. He taught me invaluable lessons about how to love myself. Dr. Perttula stepped up to the plate for me, and showed me I am very worthy just as I am. He showed me how to set an appropriate boundary, and that gentleness works better than a hammer. It was his quiet, but firm example, that helped me to trust again. He was forgiving when you made another mistake, yet again. But if he felt you were capable of much better, he was not shy to tell you. He was blessed with the great ability to really understand someone. I thank you, Dr. Perttula. You were, at the same time, strong and yet gentle. I wish I had thanked you more often. Your wisdom will remain with me.
I only knew Dr. Perttula through Jill's stories, but he was clearly a loving, engaged father. I’ve always found truth in this bit from Umberto Eco: “I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren't trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.” Who Jill is speaks well of Dr. Perttula and what he taught her in those odd moments.
We were very saddened to hear of Ed,s passing. Our deepest sympathies to Diane and families. Please know our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Cousin Brenda & Ken from Sudbury
