Many great memories of Aunt Annie Pearl. That smiling face and wonderful attitude. Another Christian woman celebrating with our Lord!!

I remember visiting in the home of George and Annie Pearl Cockrell in Sunflower Co., MS, in the late 1950s. Their daughter, Wilma Jane, married my brother, Clyde Roberts, in 1957 at the Cockrell home, and I was present for the wedding. Of course I saw Annie Pearl many other times through the years before she moved to Ohio. I remember Annie Pearl as a good Christian lady who loved going to church and reading the Bible. I extend my sympathy to Wilma and Sherry and all the family.

Aunt Annie Pearl was a kind, christian lady. I remember great visits when all the first cousins were young. She feed us well and made us feel welcome. I know she is in heaven with diamonds in her crown.

Aunt Annie Pearl was so good with Sherry Lynn and I when we were little girls. We would get our clothes dirty after she got us ready for church, then Give us a good taking too but with love.
