My childhood memories are full of summer memories of Morris. From my younger years of planning with trucks up on the hill to my teenage years of fast cars & chasing girls. Morris was like a brother rather than an uncle. Although we grew apart in our later years, we still stay in touch. You will be missed Morris but those summers with you that helped shape who I am will be cheerished for the rest of my life.

Be at peace Uncle Morris. We were raised at the same time and spent many a time running around in your 1966 Dodge Charger. Thanks for the times you helped my mother, your sister Jo Ann.
