    James Morgan was such a good man. I have many fond memories of him growing up and will deeply miss him. My mother and father thought the world of him. He will be missed but now he is at rest and with his Lord almighty and those who were a part of his past.

    James Morgan and I roomed together my 2d semester at MTSC. Had a great time and considered him a good bud for so many years. Thought the most of his Mom during those years. Certainly sad news.
