  1. I’ve known Moe and Helen for over 25 years. I was stationed at the same fire house with Moe in the 90’s and learned a lot from him. One hell of a fire fighter and one of the funniest men I’ve ever known. He definitely kept us entertained with his humor and wit. When Moe cooked you had to be there because you never knew what he was trying to fix. Just a good guy, he will be missed. R.I.P.

  2. DEAR Helen. was so sorry to hear the sad news of Morris, passing! He was a really good person and a neighbor
    for years! You have my deepest sympathy!

  5. I was lucky enough to play with Morris on a couple of McKinley’s championship football teams. He was a tough, strong and yet modest athlete. But he also had a sly wit and a mischeivious smile that made him fun to be around. My condolences to his family and close friends.

  6. Helen, so sorry about Mo, he was always so nice and funny,he gave it a hell of a fight our hearts go out to you. We will miss his memorial because we will be in Florida, but we will be thinking about you! Fly high Mo!!

  7. My Dearest Helen, I am so sorry to read of Morris’ passing. I wish I had the opportunity to meet him. You never told me how funny he is.
    I hope you are well.
