Thank you Judge Greco and on behalf of our whole family, may God always Bless you the way He has Blessesed us with the life and legacy of Larry Cullen. Forever in or thoughts and prayers,

    Very truly yours, Frankie Cullen ILPLUMBU@aol.com

    I never met this kind soul; certainly wish I had. If only more of his judicial, as well attorney colleagues resembled him in even the remotest way, our profession would be truly honorable.

    What a beautiful soul! We need more people like Mr. Cullen in this world. My late mom and grandmom had similar characters. Experience may have aided in shaping his character, but I think he was born with it. May God bless his soul.
