Mabel and my Mom were first cousins. Mabel, Charlie and Sally came to the visitation for Mom back in 2014. It was great seeing them and catching up. Barbara and I send our sincere condolences to the Pearl family.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family in your time of grief. There are no words that can fill the void of your loss or take away your pain at this time. But may you be comforted by God's promise to soon eliminate death and bring our loved ones back to us in a new world of peace.

"He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces..."- Isaiah 25:8
