God bless you, Mr Durham. You taught me violin and cello. Although I don't play anymore, that was the beginning of a lifetime love of music. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and others who loved you. I just know you're up there teaching the angels how to play!

I imagine he will continue doing what he loved most...working with children and playing with the greatest musicians who ever played. He will have a big part in the Heavenly Music Department. Thank you, Tami, for your sweet comment.

S;peaking on behalf of my sister, Mimi and brother, Bob, we are sad to hear of Morrie's passing. Each of us shared musical experiences with Morrie that have been invaluable throughout our lives. His career followed our father's (Edward Tritt) career as teacher, mentor, director and contributibuting musician. The fine community of Redlands has lost a remarkable personality that most everyone of our generation remembers with a great deal of fondness. We are proud to send a donation to the elementary music program's program in Morrie's name; may the program grow and flouish as an invaluable part of every young citizen's education. Tedd Tritt, Lake Oswego, Oregon.
