My mate. And I'm proud to call him that. I first met Mal when we both moved into our new houses in Bomaderry late in 2001, we become friends then but Mal showed me the type of person he is in 2008 when I asked him to babysit my dog for 1 week whist I go to hospital. It turned into 6 weeks and he continued to look after my dog at his own expense. When home he still came and visited me every day until he left Bomaderry. He had a lot of care for other people, that's how I'll remember him.
