    I never saw Uncle Morgan much,as a child but loved the stories Daddy told of when they were kids. Granny really had her hands full. I last saw Morgan when Granny died. When asked when he was going to retire, he said he could’t, if he ever sat down for long old arthritis would catch up to him. He can rest easy now.
