SAN ANGELO, TX –– While the story of Caleb Wallace has garnered national attention, his family in San Angelo is facing the devastating reality that the father of four only has a few hours left to live.
"Caleb won’t make it much longer. He will be moved to comfort care tomorrow and I will get to be there with him until it’s his time to return to our father in heaven," said Wallace. "I appreciate everyone all the good and the bad. You all have the right to feel the way you feel as Caleb once fought for his beliefs. He was an imperfect man but he loved his family and his little girls more than anything."
"To those who wished him death, I’m sorry his views and opinions hurt you. I prayed he’d come out of this with a new perspective and more appreciation for life. I can’t say much more than that because I can’t speak for him."
Caleb is the father to three young daughters, ages 5, 3, and 1. The couple is expecting their fourth daughter next month.
