In Loving Memory of Lessie Adams Bullard-Whaley

Lessie Adams Bullard-Whaley, a beloved wife, mother, sister, and grandmother, peacefully departed this life and went to be with her Lord and Savior on December 15, 2023, at the age of 76. Born on March 30, 1947, Lessie's journey touched the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
