My sincere condolences to the family.
Being a lover of shoes, I always enjoyed shopping at their store
and visiting with Marcille and Harold.
It was a REAL shoe store!

I offer my condolences to the family. I was given my first job at Morrissey’s Shoes. I always had a lot of respect for Mr. & Mrs. Morrissey and I appreciate the opportunity I was given to work for them.

My condolences go out to my father Jim Morrissey and his two sisters Carolyn and Ann. She was the best grandma a grandson could probably have. I'm glad she got to live a long and healthy life. There won't be a day that goes by that she doesn't cross my mind. Love you
