I read today in the Galveston newspaper the passing of Morgan. I was sad to read this but brought back old memories. We moved to Borden Ave. in Galveston about 1950, I was about 12. The Campbell's lived next door. Although I was 2 yrs. older than Morgan, he was the same age as my younger brother Bill. We became good friends and played outdoors together. I remember most how we enjoyed sitting on the front porch and playing board games and cards together. Morgan was always serious about the games and made sure we played by the rules. I remember Morgan as always being friendly and easy to get along with. I can even remember my mother saying what a nice boy Morgan was. Sending my sincere condolences and God's Blessings and Comfort to all the family,
John D. Douglas
