INTRODUCTION TO THE WORLD Horace Edward Pierson Jr. was born in Jasper, Texas on February 23, 1943 to his late parents, Horace Sr. and Theresa White Pierson. He moved to Houston and attended Yates High School. Shortly thereafter, he was married to the late Charline Johnson for 30+ years. Most recently, he married his second wife Linda Faye, whom he shared life with for the past 25 years.

ESSENCE OF HORACE Horace was a handsome, strong, gentle, loving, smart, hard-working country boy. His sister recalls his fascination with furniture was ignited at 15 yrs. of age when he worked at Boudreaux Furniture as a refinisher. He was a man of few words but loved to laugh, joke with family and tease his wife. When a niece visited, she would jokingly say the one word he endearingly spoke more than any other, was "Linda" who he loved dearly. He was a big man with a huge heart filled with great humility and a radiant smile. He loved all his immediate and extended family members and friends. He smiled with great joy as he met his most recent granddaughter, Amari Faye born this month. He was passionate about his life's work and had intuitively skilled hands to bring beautiful new life back to furniture.

COMMUNING WITH GOD Horace had a personal relationship with God. His relationship became boldly public throughout his medical challenges as his physical body and mind begin to weaken significantly. He lost some mental coherency, but he maintained spiritual solidarity through it all. It was amazing to hear Horace talking to God; proof that when the body and mind is weak, the spirit is strong. Horace called on the name above all names, JESUS many times throughout each day! His wife says a few days ago they were singing "Leaning on Jesus Christ My Savior", he remembered every word. There were times when he could not stand up but managed to gather his legs to kneel for prayer beside his wife. He knew where his help and strength were coming from God alone!

CAREER ("Labor and Fruit of His Hands") His strong work ethic, tireless dedication, appreciation of the furniture refinishing and repair craft led him to entrepreneurship. As CEO, he launched a profitable, African American owned business in Houston. Some of his prestigious clientele solely trusted him with their priceless antiques and heirlooms. They said his craftsmanship was unmatched, some called him a "miracle worker". A local TV station called him the "furniture doctor" in a broadcast featuring his business. He was a restoration specialist, specializing in wood. His creative mastery and vision allowed him to see beyond what an object "was" to what an object "could be". He enjoyed resurrecting tattered, dilapidated, aged furniture and historical relics. In the same way, in his last years as his body began to deteriorate, it's easy to parallel how God called him home to restore his soul back to its original glory. No more pain, no more strain - much like the furniture he restored back to its original greatness, but on a much higher, spiritual level.

DEPARTURE TO HEAVEN On Thursday, November 12th, God welcomed Horace to his new Heavenly home. We believe God the MASTER RESTORER has made him Anew. Through our tears, we rejoice and are confident that Horace is absent from the body but Present with the Lord! (2 Cor. 5:8)

Horace My Love

I will always remember and cherish the good times and all that was pleasing in the sight of God, anything other has been tossed into the sea of forgetfulness. No one can call my name and say baby like you did.

You remained strong minded and strong willed, you fought a good fight. I will continue to sing our songs and call on the name of Jesus as you did. Rejoice with our Heavenly Father now. Glory, Glory, Glory, when we meet again, we will walk around heaven all day.

Love you always,

Linda Pierson

I'm so blessed to have had a brother like you in my life. I wouldn't trade the memories I have for nothing in this world. You were there for me no matter what for the good and the bad, when I needed to be disciplined, even when I didn't want to be disciplined. Through you I learned what it is to be special in a person's life. Not just through words but the emotions and embracing of your smile that would let me know how much you loved me. You would protect me even from myself.

God knew like no one else knew that I needed that special brother like you. I will be okay now that I know you are resting in peace. You will be missed. I will always love and respect your memory.

Love always

Your Baby Sister Rosemary

Horace My Love,

I will always remember and cherish the good times and all that was pleasing in God's sight; anything other has been tossed into the sea of forgiveness. No one can call my name and say baby like you could. I will miss you terribly. I will sing our songs and call on Jesus like you did. You remained strong minded, strong willed and fought a good fight. Now rejoice in the Father's kingdom. Glory, glory, glory. What a day it will be when we meet again. We'll walk around heaven all day.

Love always

Linda
