  1. Dear Aunt Gladys, Debra, Teresa, Robin, Pam and Sam Jr.,
    I was so very sorry to learn of the loss of Uncle Sam. While I have not seen him in many years, my childhood memories of him are of a kind, gentle, sweet and funny man. Each of you are in my thoughts and in my prayers. Aunt Gladys, I understand your health is not so good, please take care of yourself, those children and grandchildren really need you right now. With deepest sympathy, Clara

  2. To all the family and friends of the late Samuel Edward Morrison, Sr.,

    My wife Joan and I met with Sam and his wife Gladys back in 1983 when we looked at and then purchased their red brick cape cod house on 136 City Hill Street in Naugatuck, CT. We always enjoyed living in that house and neighborhood and ended up staying there for 30 years. We now live in Waterbury, CT.

    May he rest in peace.
