  2. Hello Helen,

    We were so sorry to learn about Morris’s passing. You two folks were among the best people we’ve ever worked for. We will remember Morris as a street smart and wise man who knew how to lead and direct people. He was a man who lived his life with honor and dignity. Morris always had a great attitude and a disarming demeanor. We are glad and fortunate to have met and worked for a fine gentleman like Morris Nornberg.
    Extending our hugs and wishes for the best of comfort and strength to you Helen. Love from Mike and Brenda Reaman
