I'm so sorry you are experiencing the sadness and grief of losing your dad. We're never ready no matter how mature we are or how strong our faith. Even knowing he's with the Lord in Paradise it still hurts like the devil to be on earth without him. Warm hugs to you and Angie, Jr.

So sorry for your loss. I work with Steve at Tyler Junior College and only spoke with his Dad a couple of times several years ago. Everybody at the College sends our warmest regards and condolences.

My heart goes out to the entire Morrow family over the loss of this great man. I only met him a couple of times ... but I say "great" man because his son, Steve, is of the same honorable caliber and is truly a reflection of Gerard. I worked with Steve for many years and I truly feel there is no finer man walking this earth today than Steve. So the many blessings of this father's kind spirit lives on through his family. May he be remembered in all our hearts!

Our hearts are filled with love from the life of my uncle . There are so many memories of time spent with him. We shared a special bond. The love of God always showed through him to those fortunate enough to be touched by his life. I am so thankful to my Aunt Jimmie at the love she had given to all who enter her home. My deepest sympathy to all the Morrow Family and friends... I will miss my Uncle so much. He gave me the best of him... and loved me like no other . May he rejoice in heaven and rest in peace. Love , Ken, Amy, Tiffany & Taryn Berkowitz
