    I will miss my wonderful grandfather. He taught me how to play some great card games and he took me and my family on some great trips when I was younger. He was a sweet, kind gentle man and he could tell some great jokes. I don’t know how he could remember them all. I know he is in heaven and at peace. Love Melanyee

    My condolences to Evelyn and the family. I worked with/for Morgan for his entire time at Life and Casualty / American General Life and Casualty. I talked at length with him at the Reunion Of Old Friends last Fall. We hashed over good times and had a few laughs. I will always remember him as my friend.

    Morgan served our community as president of our homeowners association but I remember him best for his performances in the annual talent show. He and Evelyn were so much fun to watch onstage and great friends off the stage as well. He was a great guy.

    I will miss Uncle Moe greatly. He will continue to be one of the most important people and influences in my life. I have experienced him transform a whole room full of grieving relatives into a room full of laughing ones. He was so intelligent and so talented, a wonderful entertainer and joke-teller, who was very dedicated. The canary yellow he liked to wear was just great! He is truly someone to celebrate.
