    Uncle Wallace, as his nieces and nephews knew him. A very caring and loving uncle. Uncle Wallace was always looking after others. When my Dad passed away,Uncle Wallace always checked on my Mother. If anyone in our family had a need, he was there to lend a hand any way he could. The need could be transportation or home repair. It mattered not, Uncle Wallace would help out. He will be missed here on earth, however Heaven has a brand new helper. May God be with the Carpenter family.

    So sorry for your loss. He was such a good person, father and friend to many. I know you will miss him. You all were very fortunate to have him here so long . We will not be able to attend the funeral. Jedonna can not get off work.
