Although I didn't know David personally, I want to send my condolences to his family. Recently Clark and David treated me and the family in such a comforting way while picking up my former mother in law Colleen Robinson for her final stage in life. Clark shared with me the memory of taking care of Colleen's husband Miles as well as when he came to my home right before Christmas in 2007 to get the information for my late husband's memorial. He talked of the feeling he had when seeing me and my boys, our Christmas tree and the lack of presents. While telling this memory the concern on his face and in his eyes was evident. He treated me and Tim's family VERY well in our times of sorrow. He comforted me in a way I can't describe by his words, feelings and yes even his hug. I truly hope that Clark and his family have someone who can make them feel the comfort he gave to me.

I also would like for Clark to know that I told my father, Robert Steven "Buck Osborn, about your loss. He had no words, only shock. He sends his condolences as well.

Jan and Clark,
Our condolences to you, your family and friends. May you trust god in these moments to guide you with strength, courage and comfort to help you through this sad and difficult time.
David was a special person and touched so many lives in so many ways. Reading all the social pages the last few days clearly shows how loved he was. In the days, months and years to come David's legacy will live on. He's one character that will never be forgotten!!
May god bless you both with peace and acceptance in knowing that David is where the good Lord needs him.

Big Hugs!!!
Dan and Brenda Miller

I / we are so very sorry for your loss. Dave was one of the most considerate and charming man I know. He had a heart of gold and would do for anyone. He had so much left on earth to accomplish, but the Lord I guess had better and bigger plans for him. I will keep the entire Pulliam family in my thoughts and prayers for a long time to come. He will truly be missed every day by so many. Sincerely, the Utterback family.

Clark, I know this is rather late, but I was going through your website, and saw David's obituary. To say I was shocked is a great understatement! I only knew him when you did my daughter, Dea Ann O'Dell's funeral at Hutsonville, but, I immediately took a liking to him. He was so kind, considerate, and comforting, at a time when there was no comforting to be had for me at the loss of my precious daughter! I can still see him kneeling in front of me and hugging me. The world is a sadder place without him, and words can't express how very sorry I am! I know the terrible pain and hurt you feel, at what certainly is a misjustice.
