Local musician’s friends reaching out for support after mother’s sudden passing

A local musician’s friends are reaching out to the community for support in light of the sudden passing of his mother.

Alex Perrin is an accomplished musician and the founder of Within Arms Reach, a band based in Ocala, Florida. He has recorded and released multiple original songs over the past decade, and his band, which he founded over 10 years ago, recently performed alongside Red Jumpsuit Apparatus at a show in the city.

Earlier this month, Alex’s life was forever changed when his mother, Teri Perrin, passed away unexpectedly from a brain aneurism just 11 days before her 65th birthday.

Perrin shared this touching message to his late mother on Facebook just days after her passing:

You, my blessing, my friend, my heart. You are the best part of my life, this existence. I am, because of you. There will never be a greater gift, a better reason, a brighter light. I miss you. I love you mom”

Alex’s friends took to social media in light of the circumstances to ask the community for their support:

It is with a heavy heart we come to our community, family, and friends to help our amazing friend Alex Perrin in time of need. On 11/11/19, Alex’s mother Teri Perrin unexpectedly passed on.
