I am fortunate that my life & Morgans life passed along Life's Journey. Cathy Feagin, May 12, 2015 I loved visiting with Morgan and the other wise men who meet at the Farmersville Dairy Queen. It was fun to solve the world’s problems over coffee. Morgan always made it a point to ask about the family and how everyone was doing. He truly cared. This is so sad to hear. We were so lucky to have him as a friend. Joe Jaynes, May 12, 2015
