    To Mr. Morrison's family~~~~~I never had the pleasure of meeting him; but, after meeting his son and all of his family I know he was a great man! It's hard to know his left this world. I am almost sure he is so proud of each one of you. We are very fortunate to have Kevin in our family now. Prayers for all you good people!




    Rest in peace Mr OV Morrison. You leave many loving memories of a life well done.
