Nancy and family,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Pearl. She was one of my many favorite residents to care for while employed at The Ambassador. I so enjoyed working with you on your mother's care. I loved how passionate you were on making sure your mother was cared for. She was such a special lady. She will be missed. I am thinking of you and your family during this time.

I offer my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear mother, Pearl. May you find comfort in God's promise to "swallow up death forever...and will wipe away the tears from all faces" (Isaiah 25:8)
