I didn’t expect, nor was I prepared for you to leave us so quickly. How could any of us think Saturday afternoon would end differently than so many other football Saturdays?
I’m thankful that you’ve been reunited with Lisa and Paul and so many friends and family members. I know it was an unbelievable homecoming Sunday afternoon. I bet after Tony gave you a big hug he asked, “What took you so long Tall Man?” To which you replied, “ You ain’t going to believe this Apple-Jack!”
I am humbled and blessed beyond words for our long, sweet friendship. You were absolutely the best. Rest easy Wallace and don’t think for a minute Rowena will ever forget our great talks, funny jokes and good times. Love you BIG Tall Man.

I have known Wallace for almost 50 years. He is one of the kindness, sweetest man I have met. From canoe trips and ballgames when we were younger to poker games last week you will be fondly remembered and greatly missed. We love you Wallace. ❤
