Obituary

A smile for all, a heart of gold
One of the finest this world could hold
Never selfish, always kind
These are the blessings he leaves behind...

We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Phillip. He was a very nice person and a dedicated Morningside Alumni Association member as long as he was able. His wife Mary (Mrs. Morrison ) was my 6th grade teacher at Morningside. You have our deepest sympathy. Odell and Vivian Williams

Our condolences to the Morrison family. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Brother Phillip. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
