Mr. Malason was one of my favorite patrons at the library because he was always so patient and appreciative, and he had such a warm smile. I've missed him in the few months since I've left. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family--he was a wonderful person.

As soon as I see Mr. Malason's picture, I can hear his voice and wonderful memories of our families' times together come to mind. I'll never forget his expression of how precious his life-long friendship with my dad was to him. Grace, peace, and love to Mrs. Malason, Rob, Patti, and your families.
