    To the Mullen Family. Mother Mullen has a Kindred Spirit. She never met a Stranger. Her spirit was to accept people and find ways to help them, whether through good food or a talk. Mother Mullen had a good heart, and her willingness to help others was unmatched. Hang in there with the lessons she selflessly taught all of us. I am sending the family Prayers, Blessings, Comfort, and Remembrance.
