We are very sorry to hear of Mr Mullins passing. Our sympathy to all especially Cindy, Elaine, Gail and of course Mrs. Mullins. I guess the last time I saw Mr. Mullins was the day he drove all the way to Nashville with a big pickup truck load of old lumber he saved from his porch. I wish that our families would have been closer as I’m sure Mr. & Mrs. Mullins would have had lots to teach us “City kids.”
Katherine and Family, we are so sorry for your loss. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was such a good person. May God help you now & through the days ahead. God Bless, Mr. & Mrs. Willie C McGehee, Billy McGehee, Mary & Teresa Partin
