    Jim, Pam and Family;
    I could not believe the email that I received today from Saul with the news of Pearls passing. I just cannot believe that this could happen. I am so sorry for your loss Pam, I appreciated the kindness that you showed to me a few weeks ago when my Mum passed away and I am sadden that I can not be there for you. My heart aches for all of you, I only wish that I could make it home in time to comfort you the way Pearl comforted me with that Hug and Tears that we both shared . Jim I can not tell you how I feel at this time for you, I pray that you will be fine. Please take care and may God bless you and your family and give you strength to go forward.

    Dear Pamela & Family,
    Our thoughts are with you at this sad time. Although Pearl (Mom) had some 78 years it never seems enough time for family and friends. Pamela, I recall with fondness our times at Ernst & Young; Jim, you were always too generous giving Lorraine (Zoratti) and me rides to and from Pincher Creek; and I remember the infectious laugh of Pearl when we attended St. Michael’s. Although Pearl was older, we younger ones were always treated as part of the larger family by Pearl! You will have beautiful memories of a lovely lady.
    Sincerely, Marlene Malmqvist (LaGrandeur) & Family
