Dear Wayne, Caroline, Larry, and Gayle, Very sorry to hear about the passing of Morris. We remember him as a gentleman who had a good sense of humour and a chuckle when he told his stories. We also recall his expertise as a builder – starting with the garage at the house on Murphy Road. We have fond memories of the good times we shared at the cottages at Bonnie Doon and Colepoy’s Bay, especially learning how to play chess and hiking on the Bruce Trail, as well as helping to baby-sit Paul and Michael. Our heartfelt condolences, The Murphy Road Shaws (Marian, Sally, Andrew, and Allan)
