    Mr. Wyse was a very responsible and loyal man to his country & community. It has been a pleasure knowing him and his family for many years. He will be greatly missed by all of us. I enjoyed all of my conversations with him just after dark at Tom Thumb in Molino. Thank you for the time I knew you and the family you raised that became my friends growing up…
