I am sadden by the news of Allen's passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this time of their loss and grief. Allen was a classmate and teammate at Wakelon High School. I enjoyed the times we got to share together both in school and on the football field. He will be missed by family.amd friends! May his soul rest in peace with his Lord and Savior 🙏 .

Dearest Family and Friends,
We want to extend our love and prayers and heartfelt sympathy to Jackie and all of Bro. Allen's family. Larry & I knew Bro. Allen when we all attended Gold Valley COGOP together, and came to know Jackie later. My mother was always fond of Allen . She had a lot of respect for his boldness and confidence in God and for his strong unwavering desire to testify of Him. She would often visit or invite him & his children Alicia & Andy, on various occasions to have dinner at her house. Allen was a blessing to our family, especially when he was relentless in visiting Wanda's dad, R.C., in the hospital, while he was dying of colon cancer. Allen would spend hours by his bedside sharing the gospel and praying. Alicia and Andy may not remember any of this--but I (Wanda), will never forget it. I was only 22 yrs. old & struggling with personal issues of my own, when my dad passed in 1977. Nevertheless, Bro. Allen's prayers and support for my mother and family was priceless. We will always appreciate and remember those precious moments.
As a Christian, we all know that once we receive Jesus Christ as Lord, that this world is no longer our home--We are just passing through. May his family be blessed and comforted in knowing that Bro. Allen lived a Godly life that guaranteed him an Eternal home in Heaven. He is no longer hurting, suffering or in pain--He has been set free from his earthen vessel and has a new heavenly body robed in white.
I'm sure he is celebrating in Heaven, walking on streets of gold, visiting with family who have gone on before him, and maybe even visiting with my mom and dad. But more than anyone or anything--I'm sure Bro. Allen Pulley would want to see Jesus most of all!
With love & God's Blessings, Yours in Christ,
--Larry & Wanda Massey
