Bulman Passes Away----
at the age of 53. He is survived by his wife Beth
and sons Aaron (17) and Evan (14). Funeral services will be held at 3:00 PM on
Tuesday (1/16) at Northside Chapel at Crabapple in Roswell, Ga (770-645-1414).
Adrian had been hospitalized on New Year's Day for chest pains. However, the doctors
determined he had ulcers of the esophagus and asthma, but there was very little
heart blockage. Cause of death is not known at this time. May God hold his family
and friends in the palm of his hand during the days to come.
