    Praying for Lauren and Frank and all of the Wullenwaber family. It's been a long time since I've seen them, but they were our neighbors at Wrightsville Beach. They were very special people and good friends. Love to all of them.

    Stepping onto a shore and finding it heaven
    taking hold of a hand and finding it God’s hand
    breathing new air and finding it celestial air
    feeling invigorated and finding it immortality
    passing from storm & tempest to an unknown calm
    walking and finding it home

    You ALL are in my hearts and prayers, may the heavenly Lord help you to find peace and strength. Susie, Wayne Amanda & Casey

    My horses lived at the Wullemwabers' when I was in high school. Gaines was a great cowboy even if it took him a while to get to Texas. My condolences to all the family.
