Rachel, I am so sorry to hear of Morris’s passing. It was great to see you and have a chat during my recent visit to Pleasantview Towers. Morris was always smiling and did he love to dance. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

Rachel and family; I am so sorry for your loss. I only knew Morris through Pleasantview towers where my husband David was also a resident, but I found him to be a kind man who loved having his wife and brothers around him. He enjoyed the music provided and always had a smile for me. God bless you all at this difficult time.

Tony, sending deepest sympathy to you and your family on the passing of your Dad.
