What a milestone to become a centenarian, and keep one's positivity, kindness and zest for life. May her memory be for a blessing!

I met the Sand family in late October, 1965. Percy and I became partners shortly thereafter and Pearl became part of our family. Pearl always inspired us when she spoke of her love for kindergarten children. She always had an answer as to how one would have a conversation with a 5 year old. She was a gifted violinist, a painter; she always welcomed us into her home.
Later on, we would visit Pearl with our grandchildren and she always had a drawer full of goodies (paper, pencils,...

Pearls words remained with me for many years and provided much comfort. I also loved to hear her talk about her husband. They were so in love. Please know how sad I am that I did not...

I have fond memories of Pearl from Temple Israel. I can see her right now as she sat in the choir at every Shabbat and holiday services in the 1950s and 60s. My condolences to her family. Mitch Freedman
