Sincere condolences to your family upon the loss of a dear family member whom we will always remember as having a lot of spunk, a great sense of humor and a pretty phenomenal memory. We enjoyed the stories she regaled us with and remember how proud she was of the accomplishments of her children and grandchildren. Our family still has some of the very much appreciated perennials she gave us to start our first garden. We fondly remember her Christmas baking and her stories of growing up in a very large family of mostly girls. We will miss her dearly and treasure our many happy memories of visits with her.
From Brent and Patty Sinclair, Cincinnati OH. May Aunt Pearl Rest In Peace, and May God Bless Cousins Gary & Carol and Their Families at This Time of Sadness and Grief.
Carol, Gary and family, my sincere condolences to you and your family. I remember your Mom so well and have always felt that our families had a special bond with each other. Your Mom and Dad had been my Mom and Dad’s neighbours for a long, long time and all the memories that we have had over the years are special. It’s amazing how long your Mom lived. She was always spry and I truly believe that her attitude with life in general had been what kept her going. She will be truly missed.
