We pray that our Heavenly Father will give you and all your family spiritual strength and comfort during this time. Mr. Wallace is now at home and reunited with Ms. Estelle and his family and friends. Most important, he has seen his Savior Jesus Christ in all his Heavenly Glory as John saw in his vision on the isle of Patmos. Oh, what a site for Brother Wallace to see. Glory be to God in the Highest. Mr.& Mrs. R.D. Turner,Jr.

We extend our thoughts, love, and prayers as you celebrate Bro. Wallace's "home-going." He is the fulfillment of the Apostle Paul's great expectation in Philippians 1:21, "For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain."

Bro. Wallace has gained RENEWAL. With his home-going came the deliverance and rescue from all troubles, trials, and testings. He would often say, "I'm still ah-draggin'." Well, he's certainly not draggin' now!

Also, Bro. Wallace has gained REUNION. I can only imagine the delight as his eyes met the sweet eyes of Ms. Estelle's, and other loved ones...not to mention the Lord Jesus Himself!

And, Bro. Wallace has gained REWARD. He wouldn't come back to us even if he could; he has found Heaven's reward. He would, however, invite, encourage, challenge, and even beg all of us to join him there on the streets of gold by establishing a relationship with Jesus through forgiveness and fellowship with Christ.

What a home-going! God bless you as you celebrate. We love you.
