    My Husband, Freddy loved Wallace like a Brother. They worked together, rode motorcycles together and talked over the world problems. When Freddy’s disease worsened, Wallace was so faithful to come visit him, many times leaving with tears in his eyes, saying he didn’t know if he could come back, he thought we would be losing Freddy soon, never thinking he would go first. But he came back, and when he told me of his cancer, tears were shed. His death has left a hole in our hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with Mary Ann, Brett, Melody and the rest of the family. He’s just moved on to a better place where he waits for each of you to join him one day. God Bless! Love you all!

      Sue- I remember about 8 months ago, daddy left to go see Freddie and as he left he said’ I’m going to see Freddie- probably for the last time.’ Now I’m not sure if he said that because of what he internally knew or if it was because of how sick he knew Freddie was. He loved both of ya’ll so much! God bless you, lady!
