  4. So sorry to hear about Maurice passing. Worked many years with him. We both hired on at Walmart s about the same time, he was right ahead of me in seniority. We ran many trips together to Culman, Al. Rest easy my friend.

  5. Tina and family,
    We are deeply sorry for your loss. Uncle Maurice will be missed but in our hearts forever. He was a big guy full of life and always ready to sit and talk and be a friend. God has received a wonderful man in heaven and rejoined him with the love of his life.

  6. Tina and family,
    I’m so sorry to see that Maurice is gone. We are missing him at church.
    I will think of him every time I cross the railroad on Decker Road, where I came upon him right after he’d been hit by the train.
    What a good man he was.
    With my thoughts and prayers,
    Susan Grow

  7. Tina and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Maurice will truly be missed. He was such a caring, loving man. The memories he gave us will be in our hearts forever. You Tina “his girl” was the apple of his eye, he felt so very lucky to have you. We can have peace and comfort in the fact we know he is in heaven now.
    Love
