Andrea and Family, unfortunately I was not able to attend the memorial service for Cullen due to health concerns. Cullen was a friend since high school. If you were a friend of Cullen's, you were his friend for life and you knew he would do anything for you. What a super guy, and I will miss him!

Hard to believe. Cullen was so welcoming of all who came into Brandy's, a true refuge for all of us who needed a sanctuary from the rigors of studying...........like I studied at Wofford, right!!Great music, friendship and a real safe haven. God love you Cullen and bless your family and loved ones. Preston

So sorry to hear about your great loss! Cullen was a great guy who provided many people a place to go where friendships could be made. Brandy’s was like “CHEERS” where everyone knew his name. Cullen will continue to live in all of our hearts with great memories ! God Speed

johnnyworkman20 @yahoo.com Sorry to hear of Cullen’s passing. When I would get back to Sptbg, I would always make it a point to go by Brandy’s and have a beer and say hello to Cullen. I’ll miss that.

I thought so much of Cullen! Every time he came to the office to get his teeth cleaned he always asked about everybody we both knew. He was so sweet and we always enjoyed catching up on everything. Even all the years he lived in prosperity he still drove to see me. I’m so blessed to have patients that are also good friends. I will miss him so much!
