Dear Spec, Susan, Carolyn, Dorothy, James and the entire Slaughter Family, We are very sad to learn of your loss of Mrs. Pearl....She was a wonderful person. a very special lady and will be missed and remembered by many many people. Mrs. Pearl and Mr. Mansel were very involved with their family, their community, their church, and many associations and organizations that reflected their country and agricultural lifestyle. I have very fond memories of the two of them as they interacted with other families at the Junior Livestock shows and youth activities and the many Agricultural organizations and associations where they were members. I have always enjoyed their company and family. All of you were a major influence on my life. Please know that our hearts, prayers and thoughts are with you in your loss of Mrs. Pearl and I apologize for not being able to attend her services today. We have family in from out-of-state and I will not be able to attend. Love to all of you and I will always remember Mrs. Pearl and Mr. Mansel and the Slaughter Family.....Your Family stands for everything Good and American...! Love, Dr, Terry Dumas, Jo Dumas and Family
