Nancy,

You have been in my heart since I heard of Marion's death. It is such a loss when your spouse dies, but it is also comforting to have had a godly man as your husband. My sympathy goes out to you and your family.

Mr Morgan, what can I say? In the short time you have been in my life, you have been a shining light. The love that you showed for your lovely wife ( Nancy) and daughter (Pumpkin) just radiated through the air. So inspiring. You, my sweet friend, will me missed more than you know. I look forward to seeing you again when we all get to Heaven. We might even meet up in a BD dance class. RIP Mr Morgan.

I had the pleasure of taking Spanish with Marion at Central High School in 1960-61 & got a chuckle when he would meet with our teacher after class to correct her Spanish booboos in private. He had tons of Navy adventures to share; such a nice, humble person. Sorry he only had one year with us, but always knew he would make the world a better place wherever he journeyed. Anchors Aweigh, Marion!
