Mr. Morris was such a nice and kind hearted man, and I will never forget all the things he did for me. He was the best father-in-law I could ever have asked for. I will miss him so much. My thoughts and prayers go out to Wade and Mary, Linda, Kevin and Michelle, and Lori, Josh, Pearson, and Ava.

We are sad to learn of Thomas' passing. He was surely a one of a kind person. We'll remember him as someone who was always the same every time we saw him. He always had a smile and most likely good joke or a yarn to spin. Our heartfelt sympathy and love to all the family. Rest in Peace Thomas til we all meet at Jesus' feet.
