I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Pearl's passing. I know she will be missed. Our comfort is that we will be together again. Thank God for our Heavenly Hope. The family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Becky and Beth, So sorry for you loss. I have enjoyed visiting with you mom when I would see her with Murrel. This started years ago when we would be out with our twins. After getting to know Murrel at school functions for Donna’s kids, I learned to tell them apart when I saw them together. I know you will miss her. God bless your family.

SHE WAS A FINE PERSON WHO BROUGHT SO MUCH HAPPINESS AND LAUGHTER TO ALL, SHE SURE LOVED HER FAMILY AND CHERISHED HER FAMILY AND ALL THE LOVE AND JOY THEY BROUGHT HER. IF YOU KNEW HER YOU HAD A POCKET FULL OF GOLD, YOU COULD ALWAYS TELL THE LOVE SHE HAD FOR GOD AND SHE WILL BE MISSED BY SO MANY, PEARL IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO REST AND KEEP GOD SMILING, WE WILL MISS YOU JOHN O, JR AND LYNDA BAILEY

The definition of love has been shown through the devotion of love and care that Beth, Becky, Beverly Cathy, and Donna have given to The Divas over the past decade. My love and prayers are with the whole family.
We offer our condolences to the family of Pearl Palmer. I grew up knowing and loving “The Twins”. She will be missed. She is with her Lord and Savior. We will not be in her service memorial physically, but spiritually.
Heaven is rejoicing, and I imagine she’s lifting her beautiful voice in praise as a member of the Heavenly choir. I hope I get to sit beside her in that choir one day, just as I did for so many years at KFBC! Prayers for Becky and Beth and the rest of the family! May your days be filled with wonderful memories of this blesssd lady!

Prayers and love for the family of Pearl Palmer. Robert W. Hilton (Murrell’s husband) was my brother. It was always a blessing to be in Murrell and Pearl’s presents! And it was amazing they not only looked alike, sounded alike and dressed alike, they had personalities alike! Loving and caring for family and friends. She will be missed!
My condolences to the family, all of the Palmer Family that i have known were part of the foundation of Kensett. Maybe Kensett can build on and endure another generation. Johnny Hodges

Prayers for this precious family & life-long friends. May God wrap his loving & comforting arms around you as you lean on Him for strength.
The world has lost a special person with Pearl's passing. I had the pleasure of working with Pearl at the Community Action Program for Central Arkansas and getting to know her. She was so fun to be with and she cared for all in her community. I would see her and Murrell in Kensett or Searcy after her retirement and it always left me feeling better. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.Jon Rea
Such a special lady, she will be missed. Love and prayers with all of you during this time.
I've known these families for my entire life, never being able to tell them apart, seeing them out and about, and in church. Rest in love Pearl
