Malzi family,

Without her by his side, the time came for him to say Good-Bye.
Sensing the loss she followed him, onto paradise their new life begins.
No more agony or pain, all old memories now regained.

May all the love your families have help you to find peace in the days ahead.
Strong and proud your parents were, now they are together once more.
Love and Spiritual life goes on, it does not end. So hand in hand to heaven they go
with all the love from family and friends left on the earth below.

With heartfelt sympathy from our family to all of yours

Our deepest sympathies in the loss of your parents. We will always remember Gerri calling bingo numbers and helping out at church fish fries.

I will always remember Mrs Malzi. She was a sweet, lovely person with a warm friendly smile. My earliest memory of her was as a cashier at Acme Supermarket in Park Hill in the 1970s. Much sympathy to the Malzi family.
