I'm sure you and Malcolm encountered a multitude of nurses thru this journey. I am one from Bluffton Regional, just a reminder! During the times that I cared for Malcolm, your love for each other and your constant dedication to each other was so beautifully evident! May you find peace in your precious memories. Keeping you and yours in my prayers.

I can remember when we would come down to Fort Wayne to visit and Malcolm wouldn't let go of my dads leg when we were about to leave. He would wrap himself around his leg and hold tight.

So many memories of living across the street from you growing up. I always adored Malcolm. Such a kind and loving soul. Truly enjoyed babysitting for the kids and then growing up and still lucky enough to stay in touch over the years. My heart breaks for you all but God is good. We will see each other again. Prayers for comfort and peace.

So very sorry for Brenda and all the family. So many memories of teenage years with Cindy, Mal, Bruce, & Jeanie. We lose touch over the years, but many thoughts are with you all. Dan has kept me in touch and remember all those that have gone before.
