My prayers are with you all at this time of grief.

Your music, your wonderful music, will bring joy and good feeling to many for not only years but decades to come (am listening to The In-Laws soundtrack as I type this). Thank you for the great advice you gave me forty years ago, a reply to a teenager's fan letter.

Our condolences to theMorris family. John's legacy will live on through his music which matched up perfectly with movies that are cult classics. May God comfort and strengthen his family during this time of grief. Psalms 55:22

May the God of all peace bring comfort to the Morris family and friends at this difficult time.
