    Though I didn’t know him until 1998, Brother Wylie proved out to be one of my all-time best friends. It was such a joy to fellowship with him in our Lord; we laughed a lot and had our very serious moments. My unique relationship with him is that we SHARED THE SAME NAME, though no known kinship! I am WYLIE FULTON in North Carolina! God bless and comfort all the family. Joy, Lou and I love you, and hope to see you at the services Saturday.

    I met Brother Wylie at Memorial Manor , where he was living during the latter part of his life. He had a smile that lit up the room and we had an instantaneous connection through our love of Jesus Christ. I believe that God saw his needs and sent me to Bro. Wylie to help him . It was the highlight of my week to visit him , and care for him in any way that he needed. Bro. Fulton was a man who had unwavering faith in our Lord and ” lived out ” his faith on a daily basis. I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone or complain about any situation that confronted him. It was an honor and privilege to know him and call him ” my good friend ” . I will greatly miss Bro. Fulton but I know I will see him again someday. This is the peace and comfort we have through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. I just know there was a huge welcoming committee in heaven when he arrived. To all of the folks at the Hendersonville Church and other friends and family, I thank you for the cards and letters you faithfully sent to Bro. Fulton , he loved getting them and as we read them he took the opportunity to tell me about each one of you . Although I have never met most of you I feel as if I know you personally from all the wonderful conversations I had with Bro. Fulton. We are all blessed to have had him in our lives. Praying for you all.

    Pastor Fulton worked with me in planning weekly Chuch Services at Memorial Manor in Pembroke Pines FL. Up until the Sunday before going to be with Jesus; he lead the singing with How Great Thou Art. He will be missed and last Sunday we had a memorial church service in his honor. God be with this wounderful family. Our prayers are you. Pastor John of Cooper City Church of God.
