Dear Joyce, Terry, Melody, Stephen and families,

What a wonderful, loving, cheerful and kind husband and father you had! We have so many good memories of him when we lived in the Barrhead area. He always seemed to have a smile on his face, a testimony to the presence of the Holy Spirit in his life.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you grieve. Be encouraged that he is with the Lord and we will see him again!

Uncle Mel, it was sad to hear of your passing. It was wonderful that you were coming to the Bullee reunions and we were able to see a few last times. I remember coming up to Barrhead a lot when Great Grandma Bullee was in the care center up there and we spent many occasions at your house with Joyce, my Grandma Carol, and my Papa Larry. You will be greatly missed. You were a rare man, they don't make em like they use to anymore.
