We are so very sorry for the loss of precious Pierce. I have so many wonderful memories of the BSU choir at Lamar and the wonderful musicals he directed and I played the piano for. He was a joy to know and I know he is singing with all the angels in Heaven now. Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family in the days ahead.

I am so thankful for his willingness to pick me up for church every Sunday ...he shared Christ's love with me and demonstrated it in this simple act, I became a christian because of this family. Deb and Pierce treated me as a daughter. Distance has not changed my love for you all. Sometimes there are not the right words but please know my heart is always linked. Love you Deb, Lori, Robin and Trey
