So sorry to hear about Mrs Pearce. Such a kind heart she had and always very generous. I especially remember having conversations with her when visiting Cornwall and attending mass at St Peter’s Parish and I also have great memories while growing up and chatting with her. She will be remembered always, looking down and smiling on everyone as that is the way she always was.. smiling. Strength to the whole family. My prayers are with you all.
