I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family of Mrs. Morris. Cherish the memories of her. My memories of her was the nurturing care she gave to the children on Sunday at Quayle. Although she probably did not have favorites, she made me feel that my son Isaac was special. She had a calling to work with children. God bless you and keep you in all that you do.
