We are so sorry for the loss of Morgan our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family. we used to see her when she was going to college and would stop where her mother Joy worked. we used to clean at the same place her love for animals was amazing too. We had also given her mom 2 kittens, and the one did not like people too well, but her brother Mitchell as able to get near it. It was always nice to hear all the stories of their pets. we will miss you Morgan. May you rest In Peace.

I am so sad to hear this, Joy, Rollie, Ali and Mitch. I loved the energy and bright smile Morgan brought to our Scout troop. At one time she talked about becoming a teacher and I fondly recall a camp out where Morgan was talking in her sleep saying, "All right, class, everyone turn to page four." Peace and sweet memories to you all and to her husband.
