Our most sincere sympathy to the family of Forrest Pearl North. When I worked for the Airolite Co., Pearl was a truck driver. He was a fine person and a good friend. May God comfort you as only HE can do.

Remembering Uncle Pearl, how He would make Mom smile when He would carry in a pie or bread and say to her He baked it. I remember His smile and His "easy going" personality, interesting & friendly. He will be fondly remembered.

I too am truly blessed to have met him and taken care of him. I pray the God shows you His peace and comfort during this time. I apologize for not making it to the viewing, I have come down with a stomach bug. Be strong and know that you girls are the kind, patient and loving products of your dear sweet dad.
