Mrs. Lula was a wonderful lady. I remember going to Vacation Bible School every summer and Mrs. Lula would bring the cookies and koolaid around. Always a smile on her face. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Loann and Paul, may the comfort of God, family and friends surround you and your family. Lula was a wonderful woman and a good friend to me. She will be missed more than words can say.
GOD BLESS,YOU ARE WITH THE ALMIGHTY AND YOUR LOVE.
A beautiful soul! I’m sorry, Paul and Luann. I hope the memory I’m sharing brings peace to your hearts...”Jesus loves me; this I know! For the Bible tells me so!”...Long ago, I remember sitting in a circle upstairs at Penn Junction training school singing every chorus. Your mother was leading us. I’m sure this was when I learned this wonderful and simple song! She made a difference in my life. I love you all!
I’m praying for you Luann, Paul and your family!!!! Lula was always a joy to be around!!! We love her and Donald dearly!!!! I know she is rejoicing with our Heavenly Father!!!!!
In our thoughts and prayers,Phyllis, Alan, Paige, & Andrew Vickery
