TM was the best neighbor that I ever had the honor and privledge to live next to. In 1992, my wife and first daughter moved in next to TM and Dottie. 3 additional children and many years later we moved. The Pearson’s were like second parents to us. I still can remember the first day we moved in. There was a tree root that had grown long and was lifting up our sidewalk. TM came over and helped me to hack away just enough to make it safe for our family. And isn’t that what the best neighbors and people to do. They are there when you need help when you need safety. Love you TM.

I cry for sadness and joy as I read this obituary. T.M. Pearson has meant so much to my family and myself for the past 30 years. He prayed for us, stood in the gap for us and was a true friend and Brother-in-Christ to us. Tears of sadness because he leaves behind an amazing family that have to do life without him for awhile (Dotty Pearson) and tears of joy because he is in a much better place!
