    I am so sorry to here about my friend and ex-classmate ,he was in the last class to graduate from Crestwood one year ahead of the class of 72. I saw him on his job a few times and we would of course talk about Crestwood days and he told me he was looking forward to retiring I am glad he got to do that. His presence was always known by his size and his friendliness. We buried my brother on 10/28/2019 and I was here looking for his memorial and immediate saw Malachi’s name and then saw that “big smile” May God give him rest and the family peace !!!
