Family members, I am s newer member of Newton First Baptist, so I met your mother while she was residing at Trinity. She was a joy to be around, always had a big smile. My last visit with her was to take her a gingerbread house the children at church had made and sing Christmas carols. That is a fond memory I shall cherish. Julia, I graduated from Foard in 1972. I was the youngest Wallace girl. Don’t know if you remember Vivian or Emily. When I saw your name, I wondered if it was the Julia Hinkle I knew. Small world...

Heaven gain another beautiful angel. My grandma of 95 years old is finally with her husband and others that have passed before her. It’s very sad to see her go but knowing she’s in a better place with family definitely helps. I love you grandma!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ RIP
