Dad, You have only been gone three weeks and it seems like three years. I miss talking with you and seeing you. I know you are in heaven with mother and the rest of your family that went before you. I am sure you were greeted by all those that waited for you to get there! You were a wonderful, supportive, and loving father. It was my privilege to be your daughter for 53 years...."thanks for the memories". Love you now...and until I see you again! Suz

Our prayers are with the Mullman family. It's often said a man can be judged by the legacy he leaves behind. Your Dad left a tremendous legacy in the children he and Bonnie raised. Every encounter I had with him growing up always left me with an awe and respect in how he lived his life; imparting those values, every day, to his kids, I was blesed to know him and your entire family.

Dear Dad,

Life without you will never be the same. I loved the times & talks we had shared together. You were the Best Father a Daughter could ask for. I know you're with Mother now and I know how happy you must be. And for that reason, I am able to smile, without tears every time. I Love You Dad.
