Morley, l am so sorry to read of Vera’s passing. It was a pleasure to speak to both of you at Zellers.

Morley: It grieves us to greet you now on this occasion of very personal loss. Our personal and professional paths have run parallel from grade school to retirement, but I guess age tends to make us all strangers! Marion and I offer our sincere condolences.

Morley, Derrice and I send our deepest sympathy to you on Vera’s death. She was a gracious lady who bore her pain with courage and dignity for so long. We join our prayers with yours now that she may rest in peace and rise in glory.

Dearest Morley,
We just heard that Vera passed away quite recently and we were very saddened to know this. You told us on your Christmas card that she went into the nursing home so we realized she hadn’t been well. We know you have many wonderful memories of your dear wife and we hope they will help to ease your grief at this sad time in your life. How we wish we could visit with you now and give you a hug. Morley, you mean so much to us and always have and we share your pain right now. Please be assured of our many thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks ahead and especially on Friday as you lay Vera to rest.
AS you are very much aware, you are not alone in your grief, your heavenly father is walking this path with you and carrying you when need be. We send much love and heartfelt sympathy to you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Morley. We had so many wonderful times with yourself and Vera and so many laughs throughout the years. We will never forget her…may she fly with the angels until we meet her again.
