Friends and Schoolmates,
As I did not know he was ill, I was quite shocked and very saddened this morning to read of the death of Steve Pullen, Class of 1965, who passed away in Williamsburg on Sunday, April 22, 2012, at the age of 65.
He is survived by his siblings, brother, Donald Pullen of FL, sister and brother-in-law, Shirley and Terry Hall of VA, and brother and sister-in-law, Gary and Valerie Hall of VA.
From Eddie Perry ('65) of TN - 04/25/12 - "Obits":
Hope all is well with you and yours…..You may already know, but... in looking at the Daily Press online obits, I saw where Steve Pullen had passed away.
Again, thanks for all that you do.
Thank you so much, Eddie. I had seen this, but I always appreciate the backup.

I am saddened to hear that cancer has taken such a wonderful man. I knew Stevie as an adorable child when we lived in Stuart Gardens and was friends with him all through grade school and during our years at NNHS. He will be greatly missed.

Gina, we have had you and Steve in our thoughts continually since his diagnosis was made public. As a DJJ employee too, I have been proud of Steve's progress , advancement and achievements through the years. His contributions to the Department will influence the treatment of at risk children well into the future. We also knew him from high school so we were life long friends. Bless your heart and his soul and his memory. May the peace that passes all understanding be granted to you and his family. Love, Malcolm and Polly Davis

Morning Has Broken
Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic
1. Morning has broken like the first morning;
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!
2. Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven,
Like the first dewfall on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.
3. Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning,
Born of the one light Eden saw play!
Praise with elation; praise ev'ry morning,
God's recreation of the new day!
