Matilda — Harry Belafonte

Pearl had just one sister, Matilda, an older sibling who died young before today’s cancer treatments were available.  Pearl’s early years, during the Depression, would have been more enjoyable without an older sister taunting her.  Interestingly, she never shared with me that she was made miserable by Matilda.  Part of Pearl’s persona was being in the moment and not looking back.  It’s a facet of her personality that helped her stay upbeat during the challenging times.
