  1. Sincere Sympathy

    It is with much sadness that I learn of Mr. Pearson’s passing. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t aware of his name. My grandfather, Luther Thomasson, was very impressed with him and spoke so highly of his talents.
    May your many memories help sustain you as you receive the comfort only God can give. You are all in my prayers.

  2. My deepest sympathy to Linda, Lois, Billy Gray, Tommy and rest of Bill’s family….I have such fond childhood memories of both Bill and Marion because my siblings and I spent alot of time “playing” with their children…..we were close door neighbors so we were always welcome in their yard and many times the four of us girls were inside with girl talk and lots of laughs…beautiful Christian family…..R.I.P Bill 🙏🇲🇾🌹❤🌹Love to you all !!

  3. A church friend

    I did not know Bill well but I attended church with him and Marion for a long time. I may not have known either of them well but well enough to know how really a nice man he was….enough to know he cared about other people! I did visit in their home a few times while Marion was living and I worked with her for years at the hospital. I feel sadness for all the family because I do know how very nice he was and that you all have an empty spot in your life because he is gone. Prayers will be sent up for peace and good memories in your lives. I think it fair to say that the world was a better place because he was in it for over ninety years. Happy memories to the entire family!

  4. So sorry to hear of Billy’s death. One of the nicest men I have ever known.May God be with each member of his family in the months ahead without him. Lots of love from my home to yours.
