My heart and prayers to Raeford and the family. I worked with Mrs. Mullis at First Union prior to her retirement. She was a special lady. Everyone appreciated her for her work ethic, but more for her kind and friendly attitude toward everyone. We often shared our love of traveling, and especially finding those out the way and unique places in the mountains. My life was enriched by having known her.
