    Words can’t express how shocked and deeply saddened we all were to hear of the passing of your beloved Dad, Malcolm. Malcolm was a “one in a million” gentleman and we all loved him very much.
    My Dad, Wilfred, and him, as you know, were lifelong friends and shared a very special, and close, bond together. Our Mom and Dad were very close friends with your beautiful Mom and Dad and went many places together in their earlier years.
    Cheryl and I could not have asked for better or more loving Godparents than our Uncle Malcolm and Auntie Flo. They danced all night at my wedding, and brought joy and happiness to everyone they met. They were, genuinely, the nicest and kindest, people we knew.
    We all remember the wonderful times we all shared together in Montreal, Knowlton, St. Lambert, Brockville and Iroquois. Those are the precious memories that we will hold dear, forever.
    Your Dad and Mom are irreplaceable, but we know that they are now happily, together again, in heaven. They were inseparable in life, and will be inseparable, again, for eternity.
    We want to extend our sincere condolences to the whole Marston and Heinrichs families at this very trying time. May God keep you close to his heart and may you all be surrounded in peace, love and comfort as you travel down this difficult road together. Please let us know if you need anything.

    With Love and Affection,
    Wil, Esther, Kathy and Cheryl Nye

    To the Marston Family:
    I was so very sad to hear that Malcolm had passed away. For over 20 years Malcolm and I worked together at Pine Acres Home. Every Monday the two of us would do Bingo. The funny thing is the two of us were never thrilled about Bingo in general. It was not our personal cup of tea, but we both gave our time to the seniors of Pine Acres and we had lots of fun leading Bingo.
    Malcolm also visited with the seniors on Mondays. He brought lots of smiles and joy to our lives at Pine Acres Home.
    Malcolm also shared his faith with us. It was evident that he loved God. I also got to know Florence. It was so sad when your Mom passed away, and your Dad painfully missed her. It was good to see a marriage built on God and love.
    Your Dad was also a encourager. Many times he encouraged me to keep going in God’s name, when things got tough at work. His kind words and encouragement meant the world. Sincerely, Peggy Toft, Activity Assistant, Pine Acres Home
