    Pearl was a very special lady. She saw to it that many many children attended Church on Sunday. She made her rounds every Friday to see if they needed a ride. She always had a small treat bag for them. She never missed a Friday night or Sunday morning. She lived a long wonderful life. Fly high with the angels Miss Pearl. You will be missed here on earth!
