Pearson Family,How sad we were to see that your loving mom and wife passed away. We were out of town for the weekend or we would have been there to visit with you. We have so many fond memories of working with all the kids, Classic, the rodeo or wherever it was. Whenever we saw them it was always a great reunion as we talked about those fun days working together. The Pearson family has always held a special place in our hearts and Janice was such an example of love because she loved everyone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss. Love,Steve & Jayne Garner
