Friends, family and admirers of Wallace “Wah Wah” Jones attended a visitation service in memory of the Kentucky legend today at Immanuel Baptist Church in Lexington. Several people from all over the state stopped by to pay their respects, including UK head football coach Mark Stoops, before he hosts the Kentucky Football Kickoff Luncheon today at noon.
