In these moments of loss, words are useless. Fond memories are what we'll remember most. Those wonderful gatherings and endless stories of your days at MTA. His kind face remains forever in our image. You retired quietly, the same way you live in the world of good and righteous. We will never forget you Malcolm.

God rest his soul. Our most sincere condolences.
The Seales Family
