I was just speaking of Maurice and decided to see what popped up in google. I am compelled to leave this comment. I attended High School with Maurice. During that time, I knew him to be a very sincere person. When he asked you how you were doing, he meant it. He really wanted to know because he cared about people and life. He kept a warm smile on his face at all times. I did not find out that Maurice had passed away until recently and it completely broke my heart. His death was senseless and tragic; a horrible end for such a terrific person.

I urge you, anyone that may stumble upon this, to always thing before you act. I urge you to consider the pain that you may cause a family, a friend, or even a co-worker when you claim the life of their loved one. I hope that this message can reach even one person. Always remember that we all belong to some one, and their is some one that loves us....Even you.
