Lifting Tom, Haley, Taylor, Thomas, Jaley and Cooper up in our prayers. Death is a blessed release from an imperfect world. We love you guys!
It is an honor to be able to come "home" and conduct the funeral services for my grandmother. Anything I could say here would trivialize what she meant to all of us. I have tried my entire life to live by the example she and grandpa set for all of us. Their model of marriage became the standard by which I've measured my own marriage. Grandpa's work ethic became the model we all emulated as Wallace men. Grandma's calm compassion and firey, playful side became our inspiration. Grandma loved us unconditionally, never forgot any important date in our lives, and modeled what it meant to be a faithful daughter, patient wife, caring mother, compassionate grandmother and proud great grandma. I will miss her terribly but am happy to have been forever changed by her. She is with Grandpa today, trying to keep the paint off his new dress pants. Take care of them Father until I get there.
