  1. Joanne & Leonard Blackmore :

    We are saddened to hear of the passing of Morley, our very dear friend. However we rejoice in the fact that he is present with his Lord and others that he loved.
    Morley was a second father to me and gave me my first job at Woodwards in Edmonton in 1963. I spent many weekends in the Speer home and they became my second family.
    I will also remember the kindness shown to me. To my dear friend Coral, I pray God will surround you with his love and peace. Richard, may you rejoice knowing your father is with his Lord.
    Anna, I pray that you will have peace and that you will feel God’s comfort surround you at this time.

    Joanne and Leonard Blackmore.
