Dear Jamie, Christopher & family, my words cannot express my deepest sympathies I have..Morty and I worked together at Textron and we remained friends for over 20 years. What a wonderful, caring & loving man he was for his family and friends, he was a true friend. I will miss him and I loved him from day one. Morty always looked at the glass half full not half empty. Our lives were so busy but he always took the time to call and say hello, what's up he say!! Well sweet Morty your in heaven now with your prescious son Patrick that's what is up! Prayers and my deepest sorrow to the family.

Morty always walked by my desk in the mornings and always waved and smiled at me and would stop by occasionally to talk about the Ice Hogs and Blackhawks. I will miss him and our little conversations. Such a wonderful person. My prayers are with his wife and son.
