Morris, Anthony

October 24, 1983 -July 2, 1997

Story from the Quilt:
My 13 year old son, Anthony Morris, died suddenly on 7/2/1997. He was 6’3” tall and wore a size 13 shoe. He was the tallest on the 7th grade basketball team. He had already been picked for the 8th grade team and had his physical in June 1997. He had beautiful green eyes and the greatest smile. He played baseball four straight seasons. He made above average grades. To lose him, broke my heart into many pieces. He “thought” he could help a 15 year old with a troubled life; but the effort only cost him his own. His quilt square was cut from the blue jeans he was wearing.
