Dear Mala Family,
My condolences on the passing of my childhood friend and grammar school classmate. Although we have lost contact over many years I long remember and appreciate a special act of kindness which Alfred extended to me during a severe asthma attack. Despite living in different sections of Naugatuck he volunteered to accompany me on a long walk home from school to the upper reaches of Highland Avenue. Good deeds are not soon forgotten. He and his family are now remembered in my prayers.
