The Morgan family sends their deepest condolences to the Newman family. Walter and Barbara were neighbors of ours in Persimmon Grove. He would see my late husband tinkering with cars and always stopped by to see him. He always had a smile for you. Our love and prayers are sent to Barbara and families, Maura, Chris and Stephanie

There are no words to fully express the heartbreak of losing a grandparent. Yesterday my Poppop earned his angel wings and joined his loved ones in Heaven. To say he will be missed would be a true understatement! So many of my memories growing up include him. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit him and Barbara often when they moved to SC, have him at my wedding, and thankful to technology, we were able to video chat so he could "meet" Greyson and see/hear him. I am so thankful I was able to talk to him Tuesday morning (Mom said he moved a bit when he heard me 💕) and I am at peace that he is no longer suffering. I love you more than words can describe. I'll forever be your "Jessie".
