“Dear Chris, John, and Larry, We can't thank you enough for all the caring support which you gave to us during our time of pure devastation. Thank you for the help in choosing the service that met our needs and explaining why we did not need to go to expense that was unnecessary- thinking of us instead of yourselves! Thank you for the boutonnieres for the ushers/pallbearers which we would never have thought of! Thank you for personally coming to take our loved one so that we knew that she was safe and in good hands and for having her look so beautiful poinsettia which we have so enjoyed especially since flowers were one of her favorite things! Thank you for taking time to answer all our concerns no matter the time! We could go on and on but could never begin to cover what wonderful and caring people that you are!! We are so blessed to have had you all come into our lives! Thank you, Thank you, and I know that God will bless you for being the wonderful men that you are! God's Blessing and our love, G & C”

“My husbands funeral was the hardest day of my life. Larry and Sara (I think that's her name, she was so sweet!) and everyone else at the funeral home, sorry I met so many people this week I can't remember everyone's names, made this week so much easier on me. They were amazing from beginning to end, catering to my every need. Everything was so beautiful I couldn't have imagined it any better! The respect they showed my husband comforted me beyond belief. I knew he was safe and in good hands. They took care of EVERYTHING!! And they walk you through it very thoroughly because believe me you won't be thinking straight. I just met these people and I feel so close to them. Please if you want to give your loved one a beautiful celebration of life and one that you will always look back on with fond memories I HIGHLY suggest you contact Pearson's. They will forever have a place in my heart now. Thank you so so very much for all you have done for my husband, myself and our entire family and friends!! God bless you!!”

“Dear Robin, I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated the kindness, compassion, and care extended to us during what was a most difficult time. Your job is very difficult, and is probably even more so when the deceased is a friend known well by you for many years. Your entire staff is excellent, and we were privileged to work with Larry Robbins and of course you. My wife looked beautiful and the video of her life's experiences was very moving. Many Thanks. Robin, the entire process was excellent and indeed exceeded our expectations. Well done. I cannot thank you enough. Sincerely, B.D.”

“Thank you so very much for all the organization and kindness you provided in the care of my grandson. Everyone involved with the planning & visitation were so thoughtful and efficient. I now know on a "first hand basis" why Pearson's has the reputation they do! Thank you for making a devastating event as easy as possible. Sincerely, J.K.”

J.K. August 04, 2017

“Larry, As when our father passed away, Pearson's was once again the place where we wanted to be for our mother's visitation. We were especially grateful that you had a "pine box", and in that way, we were able to grant her wishes. Even during such a busy time for Pearson's, we only had to ask for what we needed. There was someone available to ask, at all times. Though I am certainly hopeful that there is no need to be seeing you again in the near future, it is a comfort to know where we would want and need to be. Thanks so much, Larry Sincerely, C.F.”

C.F. July 27, 2017

“Dan, You were especially kind, and very helpful to us, at our mother's visitation June 21st. I was most appreciative of your thoughtfulness in placing my remembrance in her coffin. Thank you for letting me share the memory that was attached to it. We appreciated your care and help at the gravesite, as well. Pearson's had taken care of our father's needs. We can't imagine going anywhere else. Thank you so much, Dan. My appreciation, C.F.”
