To the Morris Family, only found out about your Dad’s passing , unfortunately missing his service. Growing up on the other end of Darling St. Left me with fond memories of you Mom and Dad which carried through the past years. He was such a kind and gentle human and left those qualities in all you Boys. He will certainly be missed, our sincere condolences.

Peter and Sally,
Our condolences to you and your family at the passing of your Dad. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

Good China evening Peter, Sally, Christopher, Rob, Phillip and family:

Michele and I offer our heartfelt thoughts to you, all of you, on the passing of your wonderful dad. It is with a smile that we remember Mr. Morris. For my entire life I was lucky to have known Mr. Morris. Your dad was genuine, quick with a wave and a smile, stopping to say hello as he passed, curious, ever curious of what was going on. They say that intelligence is passed down from your mother, but what was endeared to you all from your father made for the best four boys our neighbourhood knew. From Michele and I, we are thinking of you and remembering you dad. Best, Keith and Michele

Rob, Peter and Phil,
So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I am out of the province until Tuesday so I won’t be able to make it to the wake or the funeral unfortunately. I have such fond memories of growing up next door to your dad. He was such a gentle man. You are all in my thoughts and prayers this weekend.

My sincerest condolences to Phil and family. Your father leaves behind a legacy of love and strong family. I hope that memories will provide you some comfort during this time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Trudy and I are very sorry to learn that great grandfather Morris passed away. He gave us Thomas and Rory, and in January, another little Morris will join his family. We need to remember, respect, and celebrate the life of Mr. Morris. He is now at peace and with his family.
