Not sure what to say?

Simply put, this lovely man changed, enhanced, and fortified my Christian life. He was a gentle leader, a fine musician, and had a heart for kids. The years I sang in the Good News Singers are cherished memories. I thank the Lord for Mr. Wallace's life and testimony.

I only met Roy a few times but he was a good Christian man. Rest in the arms of The Lord, Roy.

And his best rewards for work well done are still ahead.

Mrs. Wallace and Family,
You and Mr. Wallace played a tremendous roll in my Christian growth. You will never know how loved and respected you both are to me and my family. Thank you for sharing your lives, talents, and love so selflessly. You both will always hold a special place in our lives and in our hearts.
