BURLESON — Although she's surrounded by family outside her Burleson home, all Arlene Perry can do is cry.
She and her sister are distraught over a bad decision their spouses made.
Perry's husband was shot and killed; her sister's husband is the accused gunman.
Still, the bond between the sisters is strong.
"She's not responsible for anyone's action," Perry said.
Early Sunday morning, outside a construction zone in Fort Worth, police said Eric Perry and his brother-in-law Kevin Wolfe got into an argument. Tempers flared and Wolfe fired his weapon, killing brother-in-law instantly.
Family members said the two were were good friends who were partying together overnight.
"I have never been a fan of guns," said family member Analicia Rose. "I'm not a gun fan, and alcohol and guns just don't mix."
Rose said Wolfe attempted to give his brother-in-law CPR while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.
Now, seven children — Perry's five and Wolfe's two — have lost their fathers. Eric Perry is dead and Kevin Wolfe was taken in for questioning and released.
Arlene Perry says she's grateful for their four years of marriage, and believes Eric is with his father, who also died tragically two years ago.
"I just keep remembering how strong he was when his father passed away," Perry said, wiping back tears. "He said, 'This too shall pass... this too shall pass.'"
Arlene Perry said her husband was an awesome father, and was well insured to make sure the family will be okay.
