    Sherrod, Rodney and the Pulley Family
    So sorry hear about your loss. You had the sweetest parents in the whole world. Your dad married me and my wife in 1975. Five months and four days later he conducted her funeral service after an accidental drowning. They were always there for me after my loss. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you all.

    To all the family i dont know where to start she has always been in my life and Mr Pulley also, she was my sunday school teacher. my bible school teacher and he was my pastor. I would always stop by the rest home in wake forest and see her when i was there visting. She was still as sweet as she was when she was at home. but her days got to the point she didnt know me, but i still went in and spoke to her. God Bless each of you and may you live in peace with the years and memories you have of her. Love Deborah Keith & family

    I spent many enjoyable hours with Mrs Pulley. Mrs Pulley was such a sweet example of a Christian lady to me. When Mrs Pulley would talk to me about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins and we must ask his forgiveness to become His child tears would come to her eyes. We had many good times with Mrs Pulley . We had a big birthday celebration for her and invited family and friends, we had such fun when Sally Richards, Carol Pulley Hill, Martha Reaves, Louise Green and myself took her to the mountains. Mrs Pulley enjoyed her home and took great pride in everything the Lord had blessed her and Mr Pulley with. My live has been blessed because I knew and love Dorothy Pulley. We would sing Somewhere over the Rainbows most every
    Morning, that was her favorite song

    Dear family,

    I am saddened by the grief that you are feeling.
    Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue looking to him when ” He will wipe all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21:3,4
    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ” – 1 Corinthians 15:26
    It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ a resurrection for our loved ones.

    love from a stranger,
