  2. Rest in Peace to a wonderful person, Mrs. Maly. I sure enjoyed our time together we had when I was in high school during my time as a football manager in the athletic department. I will always remember you as a happy, special and wonderful person. You will forever be in my heart. You meant so much to me and my family. From the families of the Theiler, O’Meara, Selman and Schultz.

    Love always,

  3. My deepest sympathy to the Maly family. Our heavenly father lovingly assures us that he is close to the brokenhearted. ( Ps34:18) He also gives the assurance that he will resurrect our dear loved ones back to life as Jesus did his friend Lazarus.( Acts24:15) May these promises bring you comfort and give you hope for the future ( Rom15:4)

  4. Prayers to the entire family. Kathy was one of the kindest, sweetest and friendliest people I ever knew. It was a pleasure to call her a friend. Rest In Peace you fought a long battle. You will be missed but not forgotten.
