  • I have such great memories of Aunt Lou at the Athens farm, she was such a Godly woman. She is reunited with Uncle Bill and I can almost hear their unique laughter, just listen to Kenny’s laugh to understand. God bless and comfort the family, so great knowing that we will see her again.

  • My deepest thoughts and prayers are with the Pullins family. She was a very “special” lady, I remember her and the family from my youth when they lived at the Athens farm. Pastor Pullins and Sister Pullins spent a lot of time with the youth group, teaching us of God’s love. They helped us all to begin our young lives the right way, treated us like family. May God comfort you until you see her again. All my love, Susan Woodyard Zimmerman

  • Prayers for comfort to all the Pullins family. 50+ years ago Brother and Sister Pullins opened up their home changing the lives for many of us. The youth at church spent many weekends there. Sometimes it was only from Sunday morning service until evening service which I have many memories from. I still remember the pink dress Sister Pullins and Jean sewed and made for me when I was about 14. The whole family shared their time not leaving much time for just family time. Brother Pullins would work in Columbus almost two hours away at that time as the highways were different than today. He drove the church bus many miles in different directions to pick up all us kids for services Wednesday evening, Saturday evening, Sunday morning and Sunday night. Time that most people would have taken for their own family. Since the church had more youth than adults there wasn’t the tithing to keep a church going. Brother and Sister Pullins not only gave their time they gave their money to see that we had transportation to services, a church to meet in and food to eat while at their house. Recently I came across my first Bible that was given to me from Brother Pullins when I was 12. Today I am 63 and diffidently am the person I am today because of the mentoring from the Pullins family. The picture of Sister Pullins is just as I remember her. An awesome lady of God. God Bless.

  • To the family of Lucille E. Pulling. My family sends their deepest sympathy to you. Our thoughts and prayers goes out to you. Acts 24:15.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We could not tell you anything you did not already know about your mother/grandmother, so will just leave you with all those special memories. She was very special to us, and gave us someone to look up to as new members at the church 33 years ago (almost to date). So sorry we could not be there for support these past two days, but know that we have been praying for peace and comfort for all. Take comfort in knowing that she no longer has to suffer the toils of this world and she is now with the one she served so lovingly for many years. Love you all.

  • Billie, Becky and family,
    I’m sorry for the loss of your Mother. I’ll keep you and your family close to my heart as you heal. If you need anything, please let me know. Hugs to everyone, Denise
