Pearl was a wonderful woman. She was my mom's (Helen Castile) roommate. She was kind and considerate to everyone she met. Every time I went to visit she would always say "I love you". I had planned to visit Pearl when I arrived in Piedmont this last weekend (May 25th & 26th) from Lee's Summit Missouri. This was my first trip to Piedmont since I lost my mom on January 1st. I was so sad to hear of Pearl's passing. I am so sorry to Pearl's family for your loss. It's so hard to lose a loved one. I will keep you all in my prayers that you may have peace. The Lord is good and merciful, I'm sure she is in heaven where the Lord has prepared a place for her. For her work on earth was finished and it was time to go home. My heart goes out to you all.
