I graduated with Pearl. We had several classes together during our four years at Sylva Webster. Our senior year we usually had lunch together and had lots of laughs. I was always happy to see Pearl at Rose's and enjoyed reminiscing with her. Pearl was so sweet and will be missed.

Pearl will never be forgotten by anyone who knew her. She left that everlasting,loving smile with everyone she ever met. I loved her and her dear Mom. It won't ever be the same going to Rose's... I hope they will pay a special tribute to her. She was such a special part of the Rose's family. Prayers for the dear family and friends. BLESS her dear Fur Babies.
