    So sorry to hear of Mr Davis’s passing! He always laughed because I called him Mr. Davis and not Morris. I will miss seeing him across the driveway sitting and having a ‘cold beverage’ soaking up the sun. I stood next to him with tears in my eyes as we watched all his possessions literally go up in smoke last Thanksgiving week. The family has certainly seen more than its fair share of tragedy this winter. Thoughts and prayers with you all.
