    Mr. Larry Pulley always made me feel welcome when I would stay the night with his son Nathan when we were children. He will be missed. I think of his mother Mrs. Hassie all the time. She is missed also.

    Dear Pat and family, We were very sad to hear of Larry’s passing, but knowing what a strong faith he had, there is no doubt that he is in Heaven with Jesus. I am sure there was a celebration there by all family members when he arrived. You have my heartfelt condolences. I will be praying for comfort and strength for you in the days to come. Larry was always a favorite and the same can be said for you. Love Aunt Nancy and family

    Larry was a wonderful person and loyal friend, a person who loved the Lord and spent his time pursuing that love. His passing will leave many voids to be filled. However, while he is now resting in his well deserved eternal peace, we will not say good-bye. True Christians never say good-bye, but I will meet you in the morning.. My prayers and thoughts are extended to the family.

    I enjoyed his sense of humor and singing in the choir at Corinth Baptist Church with Larry. I worked with Larry at Glaxo and when I seen that smile, he was up to something. Rest in Peace you’re work is done.

    Larry was always such a kind and generous man. We worked together for many years at GSK and had some funny stories to tell. I know he is in heaven with his family and how happy he is. Praying for Pat and family.

  • Helen and Wayne Wilson Posted May 17, 2019 5:36 pm

    Every time we had our cars repaired Larry was the first person we talked to. He was always so friendly. On many occasions as we waited we would talk about many things but more often then not it was about church. The world is a sadder place because he is no longer here, but oh what a blessing he is to Heaven right now.
