Pearl, you were one of the first person I met at Clearview, I will forever miss your smiling face at breakfast, You always let me know if something wasn’t quite right! You are a beautiful soul and I will miss you, Rest In Peace

It was a joy to be her pastor for three years and to visit her at the care center. She had a good spirit and a warm heart. We enjoyed times or prayer; her sister Leona volunteered at the church's reading and after-school programs were often part of our conversation. The children enjoyed doing nice things for Pearl as they knew Leona.
