So sorry, for the loss of your mother and grandmother. She was a very pretty lady, with a smile that showed her kindness and love for others. Continued prayers for you all.

Ms. Pearl was one of the first ladies I met when I began attending FBCS. We attended Adult Vacation Bible School together and had so much fun. She really made me feel welcome then and every week thereafter. She was always smiling. Prayers for the family.

A Godly woman who loved her Lord and family. When you heard Ms. Pearl said, "I am praying for you" rest assured, you were taken to the throne of grace.

Will be missed but never forgotten.

Rest easy Ms. Pearl; a good and faithful servant.

What a blessing it was to know Mrs. Pearl. She and my Mom and Dad (Pastor Randy and Evelyn Gruber) will surely brighten up a corner of heaven. So sorry for your loss but thankful for her gift of friendship to so many of us.

Greg and I loved Ms. Pearl. She was such a joy to us. I would call her and bring supper to her sometimes with whatever she chose. Usually pizza hut pizza and cinnamon bread sticks. She reminded me so much of my mother. We will miss her but we know she is in Heaven now with no pain and sorrow. We will be praying for your family during this time. Love Greg and Susan Hewett
