    Just remembering all the many summers we spent together camping. I don’t know what I would have done without him and Sheila. He was a great guy and would do anything for you which he did for me all the time. He will be greatly missed by me and all the neighboring campers. He was friends to everyone and respected by all who knew him.

    Tribute to Ed Morris
    We had many wonderful times in Florida with Ed and Shiela. The most memorable were the many amazing and delicious meals we shared. Ed loved to cook! When he got his grills and bbq’s watch out. He meant business. Ed would spend hours prepping and cooking food to perfection for the ‘5th Avenue Gang’ to enjoy. Even his deserts were legendary.

    Ed also loved carving. We were thrilled when he gave us a pair of beautifully carved walking sticks. He even carved the Canadian Flag on the handles. Ed made us and many others feel special because of his attention to detail and thoughtful gestures. Your friendship and kindness will be missed

    Thank you for the memories!
