I have know Mrs. Cullen for many years. I will always remember her as an engaging, sweet, good natured individual. In my teenage years, Mrs. Cullen was one of the few of my friends's parent who I felt relaxed and comfortable talking to. My sincere condolences to Dave,Shawn, Brian, Richard, and the rest of the Cullen and Kallaway families. God Bless. -WMF
