Lina “Paddy” Malone – Military Spouse & Mother

Dear Friends:

We share with you the attached message regarding the death of Mr. Malone's dear wife. Mr. Malone is the father of Philip Newman Malone. Many of  you know that Phil is buried next to my brother (Keith Campbell) and was my sweetie years ago. Additionally, Phil was friends with Keith. We covet your prayers and expressions of sympathy for this dear family at this time. This family has suffered the loss of two children due to war and it is only fitting we let them know the brotherhood is strong.

Sincerely, Judy Campbell
