    Barbara and Family
    My deepest sympathy to you and the children. Wallace was a friend, husband, leader besides being a fireman in Princess Anne. He was an outstanding leader in Manokin Lodge. His love for each member and a mentor to all will never be forgotten. The Lodge has lost an outstanding member. I offer you the memories and leadership of Wallace and our friendship. A friend will never be forgotten. God Bless. Allen Muir, Past Master Manokin Lodge
