I've only been at Autumn a little less than a month....but Miss Pearl was one of my first residents. She was so very sweet and I truly enjoyed being able to care for her. I'll always remember sittin next to her and holding her hand when she was upset....she kissed my hand and went right to sleep. Rest Peacefully Miss high with the angels.

Loved Aunt Pearldine's frankness and sense of humor. She will be greatly missed. She was smiling and chatting with us this past January when we visited (photo). Wonderful memories of the Hodges family gatherings will sustain us through the difficulty of yet another loss.
