Please accept my condolence on the passing of your brother, father and friend. It has been a long time since I have seen Morris but I always remember him having a smile on his face. He always had a kind word for everybody. I think it is fantastic that he was 102 and still active to the end.

I knew Mr Goldstein from buying tickets at Frank's. Always enjoyed seeing him. Yesterday I asked how he was doing as I knew he had been ill and was told of his passing. I am so sorry. I did not know him well but will never forget him and his service to the country and the area. From the interactions he had with others at Frank's I know many others will always remember him also.

I met Morris when I moved to Plaza 550 late last year. He was a wonderful, friendly man and I enjoyed him very much. I was amazed when someone told me he was still working at Frank's Newsstand at 102. We have lost two great men at Plaza 550 recently - first Sam Rosen and now Morris. God bless them both.
