Glen and family, thoughts and prayers for comfort be with you all. Pearl was a beautiful person who loved her Lord and will now be rejoicing with many loved ones and praising that God.
My sympathy to your family. I remember what a sweet lady your mother and grandmother was. When I did volunteer work at Heritage Woods, she always had such a sweet disposition, it was a pleasure to see and talk with her.
Sorry to hear of your loss. She will be missed.
Glenn, hugs and prayers to you and your family. You and Toni are going through so much right now.

Sorry for your loss Message to Aunt Pearl We will miss you, Aunt Pearl. I loved to see you. You reminded me so much of my grandma, Bernice Pruitt. Rest In Peace Now, in the arms of Jesus.
So sorry for your loss. Ms pearl was such a kind, sweet and funny lady. I really enjoyed visiting with a fellow coffee lover and getting to know her while I worked at heritage woods.
We are so sorry to hear of Pearl's passing. She was such an inspiration at the Sunday Evening Bible Study at Heritage Woods. She always attended and knew the scriptures, it was a joy to have Pearl there.
