I met Dixie when I was a teacher at Burnet Elementary many years ago. She was a Title 1 teacher who came into my room to service small groups of students. Dixie was an exceptional teacher and I learned a lot from her. She was a lovely lady and I was proud to call her my friend.

When I read the name, I immediately knew this was my beloved 4th grade music teacher at Alamo School in Galveston. I have since retired after 40+ years as a Band Director in Galveston. No doubt, my love for music started in Mrs. Wallace's classroom, which I SO looked forward to each day! Good bye, sweet lady. One day, I will get to tell you in person of the impact you had on my life. Memory eternal!

Mrs. Wallace was my elementary school music teacher. Her knowledge and skill and love of music was contagious, and have stayed with me always. She never forgot a student, and when I encountered her in recent years, she was always so happy to see me and eager to hear about my own teaching experiences. I'm fortunate to have had her as a teacher and a friend.

Dear Wallace Family I am sorry to hear of your loss. She no longer will be suffering and now, will be free from pain. I am sure that Ms. Wallace has already started playing the harpsichord while choir is singing joyous chorales. Mrs. D. Wallace was my music teacher at Island Elementary. I enjoyed singing in class as well as in the choir. I was inspired with her love for music. She shared her passion for music with all us and this made an memorable impression on me. I chose to make music my own field and I have thoroughly enjoyed. 1 Samuel 16:16 "Let our lord now command your servants who are before you. Let them seek a man who is a skillful player on the harp; and it shall come about when the evil spirit from God is on you, that he shall play the harp with his hand, and you will be well." Praying for your family

Dear Family, I am so sorry for your loss. May God’s promise bring you comfort. There will be “a new earth... and He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore... I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:1-5
