My wife and I became acquainted with Mr. Pearson when he was a resident of the Sulphur Veterans Center. We met while visiting my father in law who is also a resident there. Mr. Pearson loved to talk! His wonderful humor and quick wit will be missed by all that knew him...especially me. I so much enjoyed trading friendly "jabs" with him. He was so comical! AB's gift of "gab" allowed him to become a wonderful friend to my father in law, Mr. Floyd Groves. AB became part of my "greeting routine" when my wife and I would arrive at the VA for one of our visits. As my wife and I would enter the wing, AB would be "parked" in front of the nursing station in order to watch the "comings and goi...ngs". When I saw him, I would stop, point and say something like, "Look what the cat drug up!" or "Pearson, who did your makeover today?". Regardless of what was said, AB would be grinning from ear to ear! Occasionally, when my father in law would be sleeping, I would stroll to the nurses station and sit by AB and just talk. One day in particular, we were talking about Germany. Out of the blue, Mr. Pearson told me that he didn't hold anything against those "boys" who were shooting at him. I had to hold back tears. I was constantly trying to get AB to allow me to give him a "push" when we were leaving the cafeteria. I tried a different tactic and told him that it would make my day if he would allow me to give him a "push" back to the wing. He responded,"Well, if that makes your day, have at it!". I have so many memories of him. Memories that were made in such a short time. Sadly, I will not be able to attend his service due to starting a new job. Please know that the memories made with Mr. Pearson will be forever etched into our minds and that we share the grief of your loss.
