My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends. I will miss my "girlfriend" terribly. She was such a wonderful person with an amazing sense of humor. Whenever I felt down I would always pick up the phone and call Miss Mim because I knew she would have me laughing in no time. Love and prayers to all of you during this difficult time.

 To the Pearson family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
God Bless you and watch over you.

 My Aunt Mim was a person whom always had something funny to say. Her spirit of making you laugh and always "joking," spreading her humor throughout the room. Her laughter was contagious. I have great fond memories being in the presence of Aunt Mim, and how she always put a smile on my face. The many weekends, my mom (Alice ) and I would visit Carlisle, both sisters would dance, in both competing against each other (The Jackson Twins). Aunt Mim would always talk about her sister Alice's bean soup. Aunt Mim loved her Pepsi's. Aunt Mim I love you dearly and miss you. I bet you'll be telling jokes in "heaven." Aunt Mim has been a Blessing to us all.
Loving, Your niece, Tracey Drayton and Family (Aurora, Colorado) 
 I was saddened to hear about the loss of your Mother. She was a great lady. Feel blessed that she was YOUR Mother. Death is a part of life, and we are all here for just a short period of time. Be thankful you had your Mom for as long as you did.

Remember the smiles.
Cherish the moments.
Find comfort in memories
