Not sure what to say?

Mrs.morton was my teacher.she was a great teacher.she cared.

I'm so very sorry for your loss Toby. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to y'all.

I just read in the paper about Dianne's passing and I want to offer my condolences to Toby, Bart and the rest of the family. I, along with my Mom and Dad (J. D. and Barbara Goswick) used to live across the street from Toby, Dianne, Brett, and Bart on Dalton Drive in Snyder years ago. I became best friends with Brett and Bart and they are among the best of my childhood memories. Over the years, Toby and Dianne became friends with my parents and started hanging out together...having BBQ's at...

Mrs. Morton was my 4th grade teacher at Central Elementary. She was always so nice and kind to everyone. looking at her obituary picture she still looks the same as back then, I recognized her right off.

Mr. Morton, Im so very sorry for your loss. I can empathize with your grief as I have lost one of my sons, and dad as well. Please know I will lift your family up in prayer for peace and comfort. Debra Combest Westmoreland.

So long, my dear classmate and friend. Sorry, to learn of your passing and have always wondered why we never saw you at our Jayton Homecoming and class reunions. May the Lord bless you on your heavenly journey to an eternal life on the other side. May the Morton Family Members have the strength from God and Jesus Christ, to pull them through this times of sorrow.
