The way God put Pearl in my life just amazes me. We were always comparing our stories and finding out how many things we had in common, to be 30 years apart! I would show her all my pictures (farm, politics, etc) of what was going on in our lives. We would laugh and joke at just about anything. I got to know her family, and now I get to enjoy their friendship also. God is great! I SO miss her, but will see her one day !!

Miss Pearl you will be greatly missed by the nurses and staff at Zimmerman Place. I will miss your stories. You were always so concerned about me working all night and not sleeping♥️

Miss Pearl as we called her will be missed greatly; but we look forward to the day we will once again be reunited in heaven. I can only imagine the scene when she entered heaven and saw her husband, Harold, and son, Mike, and other relatives and friends (my mom Retha who was the same age-within 4 months) and most of all her Savior, Jesus Christ. Praying comfort for the family,
