    To the Morris Family, My heart and prayers go out to you in your time of loss. I found to poem I wanted to share with you. If roses grow in heaven Lord, then pick a bunch for me, place them in my daddy’s arms and tell him they’re from me. Tell him that I love and miss him, and when he turns to smile, place a kiss on his cheek and hold him for awhile. I love you dad miss you very much! Wish heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again. I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. God has you in his arms. I have you in my heart. I love and miss u dad.
