So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your GOD. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand. – Isaiah 41:10

Pearl attended St. Mary’s County Public Schools. She was employed by The St. Mary’s County Board of Education. Pearl worked until her health began to fail.
Pearl was blessed with a God gifted voice. At a very young age, she would grace her parents visiting company by singing a beautiful religious song entitled “In The Garden” while her siblings stood idly by. Pearl’s father and mother were so proud of her singing and her parents company were elated with the beautiful melody ejected from the voice of someone so young.
Pearl enjoyed all that life had to offer. She traveled to many places. Pearl enjoyed watching her soap operas, talking on the phone with her friends and being in the company of children and grandbabies. She did not like “goodbyes”. Pearl would say “see you later”.
Pearl’s faith in the Lord was always a testimony to the way she lived. Her friendliness and kindness towards others were unmeasurable. If you were blessed to be Pearl’s friend, you were a friend for Life.

Although her presence in the flesh is no more, Pearl’s spirit will always be with us. She will never be forgotten by all who loved her.
God saw that Pearl was tired. The Almighty Father loved Pearl so much, he took her to a home prepared only for her, where peace and happiness will be forever in her midst. Farewell thy good and faithful servant.
