  2. I was a member of Pole Creek Baptist Church(1937 – 1957). I knew Lula to be a fine Christian Lady. My Grandfather Stanley and Lula Grandfather were brothers. May God be with the family. Carroll

  4. I lived across the street from Lula on Hookers Gap Road. When I was little I would go over to Lula’s house and watch TV and I have always had fond memories of her.
