    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Aunt Pearlie Mae was a sweet and kind lady. I'm glad I got to visit with her when I went home. It didn't matter where you saw her she always had a smile and a hug for you.

    We have been so blessed to have been a part of Granny Pearlie's life these past years. She reflected the love of God on every occasion we were together. Her life positively affected her family in such a way that we don't often see. We are sorry for your loss but know she will live on through each of you, her family. We love you all. Ronnie and Susan
