I have heard of tons of sweet little stories to praise the selflessness of the love from parents. Nevertheless, for Perry, his father threatens him by saying that “Perry, I’m the last thing living you’re ever gonna see’, which was just caused by a biscuit. As what Perry said about his father that he was “like a child”, Perry’s father had never truly realized his responsibility for the whole family and his life.
