So sad to read this. His parents, Betty and Malcolm Mock Sr, were good friends and I remember Malcolm Jr very well as a young boy in the store. I do remember how proud they were of him. My Daddy was an Air Force veteran and he and Malcolm Sr used to talk about him in later years. I appreciated so much how Betty and Malcolm helped my parents when they could no longer drive. Betty would have Mother call and tell her what she needed from the store and they would deliver it to Mom and Dad. They were just a couple of blocks away on Fourth Ave. My parents, Earl and Bernice Grant, would always tell me to say thankful prayers for the Mocks and I did. I lived in Florida by then and didn't get home as often as I'd liked. Because of the Mocks and other sweet neighbors in the South End, my parents were able to stay in their home for a few extra years.

Thoughts and love to the Family. I remember and cherish the
friendship I received from Malcolm when I moved to Glynn
Academy in Jan. of our Jr. Year. He was always so friendly and
After we moved back to GA in 2000 we didn't get to see too
much of him but the few times he would attend Class of 58
Functions - he was the same Ol Malcolm. My husband Edgar
grew up on the South End of Brunswick and remembers
Malcolm as a 'Little Boy'!
Prayers to you All. - BJ Tuten
