To the Morris children,
Your father was truly one of the most caring, warm, loving and beautiful men ever placed on this earth. He had a rare way of always making you feel special, and always giving his undivided attention and love to you even during the briefest of interactions.
I also have fond memories of trips with my family to visit " Uncle Al and Aunt Arlene" and family on the farm of Tate's Creek Road. They were wonderful times. When Uncle Al walked into a room, he lit the entire place with his warmth. I shall miss him very much.
Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. He was truly a role model and inspiration to me, and to all.

I have always maintained a close relationship with Dad even though I was no longer married to Gregg. He and Arlene made my move to Kentucky in 1970 so joyful and made my life so wonderful. THose days were some of the happiest in my life. I will always remember riding Dad's polo ponies, Abby and Reuben, through the Hillenmeyers gardens(which we had permission to do) and the wonderful Sunday brunches. Thank you Dad for touching my life so beautifully.
Al Morris' professional life changed so many who came after him. His impact continues even today. I am a product of how he changed dental education and I am proud of it. Thank you Al for all you did to advance the field. My sincerely condolences are extended to the Morris family. He will be greatly missed, but feel joy in all his wonderful accomplishments.
I am so sorry to hear about the death of your father. Keeping you in my thoughts.
Uncle Al!!! I always thought of him as my uncle because he took my mom to the hospital when she was in labor with me. Al saw me before my dad did! Daddy was in Ann Arbor getting things ready for us to move there.
I am deeply saddened by his passing, but am so glad I was fortunate enough to have spent time with him just a few months ago. He had come to check up on Emmett, Marie, and my brother, Peter. Al was such a caring friend to my parents and was always concerned about their health as well as my brothers'.
Al always had a way of making you feel special! I can remember getting so excited anytime I found out we would be going out to the farm or heading to one of his polo matches. Those memories will always be with me. My deepest condolences to the Morris family.

I have such fond memories of going out the the farm on Tates Creek Road to rake the endless supply of fall leaves and then enjoying a meal together with the Morris family. Al was like an Uncle to us and always made me feel special in his presence. He was a grand gentleman and I will miss him greatly but cherish my memories always!
For Al's family,
Al proved that the most talented people are also the most gracious. His wisdom was at once brilliant and thoughtful.
I was so blessed to know him and work for him.
Our family will always think of Al with love and admiration. I'm so sorry for your loss.
