To Sara, Jayson, and Shelly,

I was stunned to receive the news of your father's passing. I know only too well how difficult it is to deal with a sudden death; but rest assured that he knew how much he was loved by all of you.
May the good Lord grant you the strength you need in the days to come.

Morrie was a great guy and he did have a dry wit.

We grew up together in Harlingen and lived within bicycle riding distance of each other.. We attended St. Anthony's Catholic School together grades 1 through 8.

Morrie's parents were great people. They were always very nice to me.

Morrie lived on Arroyo Drive in Harlingen which gave us access to miles of Arroyo Colorado brush country to explore.. Lots of Tarantulas!

In the 9th grade we, a group of 4 or 5 boys, rode an un-air conditioned Valley Transit bus from Harlingen to Brownsville everyday by way of San Benito and Los Fresnos carrying the mail and picking up and dropping off people along the side of the highway to get to St. Joseph's Academy in Brownsville.

We got on the bus at the Harlingen Bus Station before 7AM in the morning and the bus left us 8 blocks from the school in Brownsville; so we were always 30 minutes late getting there everyday. The school let us leave 30 minutes early each day so we could walk back to where the bus picked us up and we reversed the trip back to Harlingen arriving about 4:30PM..

We each carried a "bus pass" that was good for 30 days. This month long ticket cost our parents $7.

Morrie was also an HAM Radio operator and had a ham radio set up in his house on Arroyo Drive in Harlingen. You never knew who or where you were you were going to be talking to when you turned that thing on..

Morrie was very intelligent; but, he had the "dumbest" Irish Setter dog named Bongo. Bongo was its perfect name..

In 1964, his first year at the University of Texas, Morrie lived in an apartment on Riverside drive. I was in college down the road in San Marcos at the time.

Morrie had a British Racing Green Triumph TR4 sportscar that looked really cool even though, being British, it was broken some of the time.

Godspeed Morrie Verner.

God Bless the Verner Family. Mr. Verner was a wonderful, kind man. Know that God has a special place for Morrie in Heaven.

Although we worked together for a short time, I grew to admire and depend on his quiet strength in times of crisis, and his wicked wit when the crisis had passed. He will be missed.
