"Hey Jack, been missing you lately. This is the time of year we used to chew up the Palm Springs golf courses. Was thinking about you while golfing and driving through Ireland this past summer and remembering how we navigated all those round-abouts through Scotland and England on our golf trip to the British Open."

"Was thinking about Jack and Debbie a lot this past week as Leah and I were golfing on those same courses we used to haunt together in Palm Springs (Shadow Ridge, Desert Willow, Mission Hills, La Quinta, PGA West). Lots of good memories of the laughs, the golf cart hijinks, the restaurants, the enviously crisp clean golf shots launched off Jacks driver. Leah's brother Gary and his wife Linda came over from San Diego and Gary and I reminisced about playing with Jack and David at PGA West stadium. Miss you lots Jack."

"One year has passed and Jack would be so proud of Debbie and how she has handled the entire years process. It was full of grief of losing her Love, the estate work, and tons of paperwork for business conclusions. Some days it was overwhelming and others went along just fine. Spice the cat was a huge comfort even though his tormenting would continue during the quilting sessions. Debbie kept everything going which included inviting family and friends to her home to share in what her and Jack had created. Debbie made new memories as well as enjoyed their boat, fishing, yard work and humming bird feedings. The entire year was a tribute to Jack in Debbie's eyes as it remained important to keep Jack's spirit alive and the things he cherished near. One year can seem like an eternity, but it is the beginning of a new strength for Debbie to share with others. Her butterfly wings can now spread far. Again, Jack would be proud."

"It is hard to believe that one year has gone by without Jack.  My year has been spent dealing with lawyers and accountants and Revenue Canada and bankers!  Lots of things to look after.  People say not to make any changes for one year, although Barb and I did try to clean the garage and keep up with all the yard work and home maintenance.  After all the hard work was done, we decided to head off to Hawaii and take in some sunshine.  Starting playing tennis and took a few golf lessons as well.  Met some friends here, so thinking of coming back next year,  One year just reminds me of all the years stretching ahead that we are without our beloved husband, father, brother and friend.  It is very hard to be without him and he is always in my thoughts and in my heart."

"Debbie, you continue to be in our thoughts and prayers each day.  We were just saying this morning that it doesn't seem like it is a year since the four of us were having such a great time on South Padre Island.  We think of your dear and precious Jack so often.  We really miss him and all the good times we all had together -- precious memories!  Nelson sure misses the golfing and comments on this often that Jack was such a great friend -- and a great golfing buddy.  Debbie, may you be blessed today with many precious memories of your dear and precious Jack.  Wish we could have been together for supper tonight and light a candle in Jack's memory.  We will do this when you get back home!  God Bless You today, in a very special way, our dear and precious friend!  Love you so much!"

"Dear Jack: You've made a greater impact on my life then almost any other man in my life. You taught me things about life that you just cannot learn. I'll always treasure our moments fishing, and laughing while cracking jokes.
I'll always miss you, and i'll never ever forget our last conversation.
Love you and miss you like a father. Goodbye my friend."

"On Saturday with the big hype on the up coming fight  I was sitting at home here thinking about boxing and remembering the time that Jack and I went to Brandon to watch a certain fight. Jack was right up to speed on the fight game and knew all the fighters.  Well there was a competition who could get the most points and Jack went one way and I went the other on his advice. We won the prizes and  as I recall his score was almost perfect.
On this what would have been Jack's Birthday I fondly remember all the good time spent celebrating that very event. RIP Jack we will be there to celebrate with you at some point."

"It is with a very saddened heart that I write a note today. My wife and I were sitting remembering all the good times we enjoyed with the Morrows. Golf trips, snow machine trips, parties at the lake, and lets not forget the pool table - a labor of love. LOL  Jack we will miss you and Debbie if there is anything we can help with please give us a call. I am in hopes to get into Winnipeg for a visit in the not to distant future and again if I can help out please ask."

"One night, I was looking forward to getting together with Jack and Debbie this summer.  Next morning, I learned that Jack couldn’t wait for the next time that I was counting on.

We met Jack and Debbie first as Gordon’s clients about ten years ago, and then they quickly became two of our dearest friends.  Jack wore many hats in our relationship ranging from our client, partner, pharmacist, friend, to family.

Regrettably, I wasn’t able to attend Jack's memorial service today with the time and distance restrictions, but spent the day remembering him going through the wonderful memorial site Debbie created.  I’m sure she arranged an equally wonderful memorial service for him with the family and friends around as well.

Thank you so much Jack for your trust, loyalty, and friendship all these years.  Hopefully you are reunited with Gordon and Daksh now and you all are enjoying one another’s company again.  You guys are probably bantering over Fox news, UFC fights, and SEO strategies ("Gurden, you have no SEO” as Daksh would often say).  And of course, contemplating world domination with new business ideas from numerous brainstorming sessions.

Debbie, we both appreciated you just as much and I hope to be able to repay your kindness at least little bit through this difficult time.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime you need a friend (if you can settle for an unreliable one, that is).  His memories are alive in my heart, and you and the family are in my thoughts."

"Debbie, your dear Jack was a wonderful loving and caring friend who was loved by all who had the great privilege of knowing him.  We will never cease to thank God for the wonderful memories.  We will miss our dear friend Jack so very much.  May you be blessed with many precious memories, Debbie.  How we loved having you both come and visit us in Texas -- so many wonderful times together and precious memories both here and at home.  We continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers each day.  May you feel God's arms of comfort wrapped around you.  Love you so much, Debbie.  You are a dear and precious friend -- and will ALWAYS be!  Our love and prayers."

"Hi there Debbie and family. I was so sorry to hear of Jack' passing. I went to school with him in Melita till grade 4 when my Dad Oscar Goodman was transferred with the bank to Erickson. I have fond memories of  Jack his parents and the rest of his family. My Mom Vina curled lots with his Mom and I remember they won silver trays at the Winnipeg bonspiel of which they were very proud!  Lots of days to their drug store. I remember they sold sheet music which my Mom always bought and I still have!,  I passed the info from the Free Press to another classmate Bev Cameron.  Although I haven't seen him for years remember Jack as always a real nice kid and so sorry he is no longer with you. Take care"

"We met Jack on a few occasions over many years and we were deeply saddened to read this news. I remember him most as someone who brought my wonderful friend Debbie to meet up with me at my parents when I would visit from afar, often bringing incredible support at times when it was needed the most. We feel very privileged to have known him just a little and we extend our sincere sympathies to all the family and many friends affected deeply by this loss. love from Sherry Bowman & Joe Apaloo"

"Jack Morrow was a great man. A wonderful intellect, a great soul of matchless courage, one of the great men of the earth. He was an exceptional and gifted human being. You will be in our heart in the rest of life. We want to pay tribute to Jack Morrow ourselves.

"I worked for Jack and Debbie for about 4 years and although I didn't work for or with Jack very often, I remember Jack as being very easy to work for and with. I also remember Jack as a good neighbor, always willing to help whenever I asked. As a golfer I remember Jack hitting the ball far longer and straighter than I although I put that down to better equipment! Jack was about 7 years older than me so need some sort of excuse! You will be missed."

"Dear Debbie,  So sorry to hear of your loss.  My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.  Jack loved Mr. Gray.. spending time with him in the mornings, he loved feeding those humming birds in the summer, leaving trails of sugar water out of the house.. and most of all, tending his roses in front of the house.  Take care."
