To the Mullinax Family: I was saddened to learn of the passing of Mike. Our family went to Church with him and all of the family when Preacher Buddy was Pastor at Chilhowie Baptist Church. I also worked with he and Lisa at Brunswick and General Dynamics. My sympathy and prayers to his family and friends. Love to you Preacher Buddy and Mrs. Ann. Love and hugs to you Lisa.
