Our condolences to The Bullion Family. Harry was working in the Exxon Refinery Laboratory, when I hired on in 1981. Harry proudly referred to you, Betty Lou, and the children. He, also, had a great sense of humor. To this day, I still refer to his jokes. We shared meals, stories, and picked college football winners, together. Harry knew my husband, Fulton, prior to working with me at ExxonMobil. Our prayers are with you and your family. Fulton and Mary Toaston (Baton Rouge, LA)

Dear Bullion Family... i am so very sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Bullion. It seems only yesterday he was at the stove teaching me the finer points of making a roux. May the joyful times your family shared comfort you today and always.

Aunt Betty Lou,
I just heard about Uncle Harry yesterday while in the Fort Lauderdale airport returning from a cruise. My brother Paul received a text from his son who had seen Rhett Glindmeyer in Nashville and heard the news from him. I am so sorry I wasn't in town or I would have been at the funeral.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Deepest condolences to your Mom and all you brothers. I can remember being served my very first and last pan-fried crawfish tails and the story behind them about 35 years ago. Rest in Peace!
