On Behalf of the McWaters family. I'd like to share our sympathy for the entire community. Mr. Wallace was well known. Some liked his opinion and stance on things, others didn't. However, people respected him. I love my home town and everyone in it. Each and every loss results in mourning by our famalues and lived one's, but also a celebration of a life lived well.
I love you all!

Mr Wallace was a sweet man. After he retired from Brinks he would still stop by the office every so often to say hello and tell stories. I will miss those visits. Prayers for Mrs. Mable and family.............Jackie Williams
