Dear Mrs. Silver and family:

I was very saddened to hear of Mr. Silver's passing. I worked with Mr. Silver many many years ago when I was with a young lady at SunLife Group Benefits. He always had time to lend an ear and offer sound advice when it was needed or warranted. I offer my families sincerest condolences to you all during this difficult time.

Kindest regards,

Dear Hazel & family

Pat & I were sorry to read of Malcolm's passing. It is hard to believe we met in 1960 shortly after i joined the Royal Bank. We then worked together briefly at A&A before we both ended up at Sun Life. That lasted a couple of years as you moved to Winnipeg & we moved to Calgary upon your return to Halifax.

I always enjoyed Malcolm's company & I know how proud he was of your family . He was where he wanted to be. Our deepest sympathy to you & your family on your loss of a great partner and father.

Al & Pat

Our connection with Malcolm began when we (Margo, Peter and myself) spent time in the summer visiting our grandmother , Jessie Johnson, in Goldboro. Time has passed but the pleasant memories remain. My condolences to the family.

Many fond memories of Malcolm—from our times with the Brightwood Bowling League to our many encounters on and off the Course at Brightwood. Malcolm was always the same—quiet, pleasant, helpful, and ever the gentleman. Our sincere condolences to Hazel and family at this difficult time and at the loss of such a fine man.
