“I am so sorry to learn of Pearl's passing. I am sure she is glad to be with Otto again. I have so many memories of your parents and good times at their house and at the lake. Thinking of you all.”

“I would like to extend my deepest sympathy at the passing of Pearl. Of all the people of that generation that I knew growing up she was definitely one of the top three. The lunches and afternoon snacks when we were walking beans were legendary! It did not matter how hot the August sun was, after she fed us, I was ready for anything. In my eyes she was a great lady.”
