James “Pop” H. Hulsey, Sr.

Jennifer,

It has been such a pleasure getting to know you and your dad through the beautiful memories you've shared. I love how you everything led back to Pop being the kind of person that you could count on - from laughter, to helping his community, to being a role model & to being "larger than life."

Thank you for allowing me to get to know what a great man James Hulsey was.

Sincerely,

~Bonnie Ansley

I am so sorry for your loss, I will be praying for the family. Pop was the best “papa” to Memphis, and Memphis thought the world of him. They were best buddies and he will be missed very deeply. He will always remember his best buddy.

In your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust our brother, James.

In this life you embraced him with your tender love; deliver him now from every evil, and bid him eternal rest.

The old order has passed away: welcome them into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain, but fullness of peace and joy, with your Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.

Amen

I am so sorry for your loss, my prayers to the family.
