Pearl you will be missed.I wish we had gotten that last lunch date in. Erika you were so good to her. We carpooled for over 25 years she was so proud of you. I remember so many great conversations with her. When you were a passenger in her car let’s just say she was a “ sport” car type driver. I saw construction barrels a few times coming at me. She would say I used to drive in New York I got this. . As someone I used to work with once told me you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Rest now dearest Pearl. I will never forget you.
