Il miss you Poppy, We had some amazing fishing trips.
I pray that I may live to fish
Until my dying day
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord’s great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.

My deepest sympathy to the Pierson family: Mom Kathy, Kathy, Kim, Kelly and Kristi, the many grandkids and spouses and other extended family. Mr. Pierson was always a kind, gentle and quiet person and I have fond memories of him when he would come home from his truck driving trips and us kids would be playing at the family home. He was a good man. I'm so sorry for your loss. Peace, comfort and love to this dear family.
