Many of you will remember Pearl who came to live at La Pedrera with her husband Stan. They were regular attenders at events here and we often met them in the village where they would stop for a coffee and a chat.
Sadly, Stan died leaving Pearl to live in the portable home they bought. Although her family wanted Pearl to return to England, she was determined to stay.
Most days you would find Pearl walking down to the village or returning home on her own and sometimes we would meet her in the VaiVen for a chat.
As time went on though, Pearl became confused and often failed to recognise you. Sadly now she has passed away, no doubt to be reunited with her beloved Stan.
Pearl was a cultured lady who never had a bad word to say about her life here in Bigastro even though it can't have been easy at times. I am sure she will be missed by all who got to know her.
According to my friend Scout John, her funeral service at Vega Baja was very well attended by many from our urbanisation and from the campsite. A previous appointment meant that Pamela and I could not attend but still our thoughts were with her.
