|In Celebration of Pearl
Some of Pearl's accomplishments:
Words that Pearl clipped from a newspaper regarding her death:
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glint on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
and I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circling flight,
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
What can you do?
Pearl might say:
|Pearl requested no burial or ceremony.|
We know that Pearl would ask for nothing more than to be remembered her the way she was. For those with questions about making monetary donations in lieu of flowers, we have included details here.
We also know there a lot of unanswered questions about her biking accident, during which she suffered a severe brain injury through her helmet when struck by another biker on January 29th. We don't recommend looking for more information than that, but those who insist may click here.
