and will be sadly missed.

We wish we could be with all of you during this difficult time. You will be in our thoughts and prayers through the next few days. We love aloof you!
My dearest Auntie Pearl you filled everyone’s life with joy and offered a kind word of encouragement to anyone in need. You were the most unpretentious person I ever knew. I love you for many reasons and thank you for being one of the few who genuinely cared about me when I became ill. You never forgot to call, invite me to dinner or offer any kindnesses from Uncle Frank and yourself. There are no goodbyes because once you touched my life were connected in each other’s hearts and minds for eternity. Dan and I will keep Uncle Frank, Frank, Carol-Ann, David, Kathy, Gary, Shannon, Ashley, Trevor, Natasha, Grace, Halle, Liam and Mason in our thoughts and prayers. What you once enjoyed you can never lose because your love for her was so grand it has become a part of you forever.
SHE WALKS IN BEAUTY
She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half the impair’d the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o’er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent ! – LORD BYRON
I REMEMBER YOU
The world may never notice. If a rosebud doesn’t bloom: Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon.
But every life that ever forms, Or ever comes to be Touches the World in some small way. For all eternity.
The little ones we longed for. We’re swiftly here and gone. But the love that was then planted Is a light that still shines on.
And though our arms are empty, Our hearts know what to do Every beating of my heart says “I REMEMBER YOU.”
– Spencer Anne Nosella

I just saw the notice about Pearl. As soon as I saw her face I know she looked familiar and when I saw the name Pearl I knew who she was.
She was the only lunch lady at Parkside that most of the students knew her name right from grade 9. She was always smiling and laughing with the students. When some of us got together and talked about people that worked at Parkside mostly teachers, her name came up. I’m so sorry for your loss.
