  2. I will miss my friend john.
    I know he will be happy in heaven more so than here on earth Being that he missed his late wife dearly.
    He will be a friend hard to forget cause of his great personality and around the globe out of this world stories. I can see him now wearing that fedora hat with that grin of a man that was of class.
    One of his sayings at the end of a meeting or call would be ‘Catch you on the Flipside’ And that is what we will have to do now. Bless you John!
    I will pray for his father, daughter and family he left behind for they will be the ones to suffer his loss and have only memories now of this good fellow John Robert Morris.

  3. I would simply like to share my fondest memory of Jon:
    He brought me, on a family trip, to the mountains of Grindelwald where we lept off the ground and suspended reality for the magical, weightless and carefree minutes until our paragliders touched down.

  13. Mike & I had a very good visit in Asheville, N. C. with Jon and Uncle Bob. He spoke about his trip to Europe with his father. He told us about Rachel and her life in San Antonio. He spoke about his sisters and their families.
    Mike and I are thankful we were able to have this visit, Uncle Bob was looking forward to his 93rd birthday.
    We send our prayers to each of you on the loss of your Jon Robert.

    Mike and Pat, Brigid Koontz and Tara Reid.

  14. Dear Mr. Morris, Susie, Pam and Rachel,
    We know that this is a hard time for all of you. I (Anne) remember Jon from when Susie and I were at Rice and he was just a young boy. It is always hard when we lose someone dear to us. Bob and I will be praying for all of you in your grief.

  15. It will be the little things
    that you will remember
    the quiet moments, the smiles,
    the laughter.
    And although it may
    seem hard right now,
    it will be the memory
    of these little things
    that help to push away the pain
    and bring the smiles back again.’
    -HCW
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Love Carol and Justin.
