  3. My mother is a long time resident of Prince Hall where she and I both had the pleasure of laughing, talking and getting to know the Grand Commander.He will forever be apart of Prince Hall.

  4. I too will miss SGIG Wallace; He was present when I received my 33rd degree and was a fixture at our USC SJ PHA for as long as I can remember. We have lost a giant in freemasonry. On several occasions I visited consistories in New York and had the pleasure to attend his USC. We shall see each other on the other side. God bless his family

  5. Great people are identified through their thoughts and actions. Dr. Solomon Wallace will always be remembered through his thoughts and actions. There are buildings for people to living that he put in place. There are camps for our youth that he put in place. There are young men and woman in college today because of his thoughts and actions.
    We will miss him dearly and wish his family the best.
