  1. I was saddened to read of the passing of Morris. Although it has been a good many years that I have seen him he was a person one doesn’t forget easily. I worked for Greyhound as a ticket agent at the depot in Calgary from 1959 to 62 and it was there that we became friends.
    I have many fond memories of visting him and Anne on First Ave. House sitting while all of you were on vacation and nipping at the moon shine after he visited the inlaws. We had many a good laugh. Morris had great stories of his logging days and his army days. God Bless him.
