Though we only met Maurice once, we’ve been friends with his son, David, for several years. Were it possible to support Maurice’s family we would gladly, although sadly, do so. Our most sincere thoughts and prayers to all that loved Maurice during this time of sorrow and hope fond and joyous memories carry each of you through.
