It is with a great deal of sadness that I was informed of the passing of Uncle Morris. Aunt Irene, Gina, Stan, and Mike I am truly sorry for your loss. Uncle Morris was a great man, he was always so kind to everyone. We grow up and move on with our own lives and lose touch with each other, and I regret I didn't get a chance to see him in the last few years. I will always remember him as a role model along with my own dad as to what it was to be a husband and father. I am truly sorry for your loss. Mike
