  2. When we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that you have an angel to watch over you now. I bet there is one heck of a reunion in heaven going on.

  4. To all of Pearl’s family: I am so sorry to hear of Pearl’s passing. I will always think of her as a wonderful lady with such a beautiful smile. I am sure she looked back on her 102+ years with a feeling of being blessed and amazed to watch her family grow into five generations. So few people actually get to see what their great grandchildren become and get to hold their great great grandchildren on their laps. You have my sympathy and much love.

  5. So many memories, so many years, so much love our families have shared with your mother at the heart of it. When this is a time for celebration for this long life it is also a time of reflection which is so bittersweet. Your family is in our hearts forever. God give you strength during this time. Your family has always been one of true caring and sharing your love. Bless you all.
