To the Morrison Family, I will miss a dear friend ( Brother Wade) and all the good times and shared memories, mostly as young high school men. The conversations at Christmas time over the years will leave me with good memories. You have fought the good fight, now may you have eternal peace until we meet again. Jerry Rucker and Family
