  • Pearl was a lovely woman and my second mother my children Autum Bruemmer and kaylee all love her .she was their grandmother as pearl wanted it to be

  • Today I found out one of my grandmother’s (Elizabeth Amoroso) dearest friends passed away last month. My heart is heavy for you ‘Mom Mom Pearl.’ I’m thinking about your sweet voice and how my mom & me & Kaylee would go out of our way to go to the McDonald’s you worked at. I’m thinking about how your laughter lit up the room. I know you & my mommom are catching up, up there. But damn I feel like I lost my grandmother all over again. Just one more thing to say…F&*$ cancer.
