Uncle Wallace, your brother Phillip and I was just talking about you. We were saying how much that we missed you and was reflecting on what a great person that you was. It has been a while since I have talked to you, but I wanted you to know that I do miss you. Maybe one day we can go camping again. Merry Christmas
