    I don’t know where to began, whew, I am going to miss you. You wasn’t related to us Pullen’s, but you were definitely family. We appreciate everything you have done for us. You were the jack of all trades for frogtown, their wasn’t nothing you couldn’t fix. I remember you and my mom Bernice/Leathy would go at it all the time and be back friends the next day 😂. Strange love/hate relationship you guys had. I didn’t know Tuesday at my grandma house was going to be the last time I saw you, but I’m glad I did.
    To the family, praying for strength during this time.

  10. I will truly miss this guy, from the first time we met over
    thirty years ago he never treated me like a stranger. A real
    true brother in law.

    Ronald Earl Brazwell was my friend who became family. I always called him Mr. Brazwell because of the great respect I held for him.

    We started out as friends but some where along the way we became like brothers. I will miss my friend and brother. He left the world a little better.

  12. Deborah Walker-Hicks
