Ken – I know we haven’t seen each other for quite a while, but that’s ok.. You’ve always been my brother. I know that you’ve lived your life with abandon., and no regrets. You were a “go for it” kid, that grew up to be a responsible adult. I will never forget the trouble we got into while we kids. not bad trouble, but funny trouble. I still think of the times playing in the woods, making camps and climbing trees. You will be missed by more people than you realize.
Forever in our hearts…. Love you
Love Linda & Robert
Kenny, your death has come to early in life. Not one Pearson was ready for this. The devastation to our hearts is insurmountable. I know in time we will heal, but never get over the loss. Not only where you my twin brother, our brother, but you were a husband, father and grandfather.
Our life’s started Tuesday Oct 27, 1964. Back then there was no ultrasounds so one of us was a surprise to our parents, but you were a gift. Over the years you grew up to be a man that never would compromise your beliefs or standards. You stood with a conviction to your beliefs, even though not everyone may agree with them, you stood strong. You stood as a protector to your family and a provider. Always putting your family first even if it cost you a job or two. Not rich man in money but a wealthy man from the love you received from your family and friends. You were always willing to help a friend in need even at a cost to yourself. We need more like you in this world.
Your death has taken a part of me with you, and I feel empty inside knowing that never again will I be able to have our long chats at night, talking about everything and nothing at all or hear your voice. You were more than a brother to me, you where my best friend.
Today we say goodby to you, but I will not. I will simply say, until we meet again.
Rest well Kenny I got this, goodnight.
