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.

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!

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.
