It is with sadness that I announce the passing of Matthew Morgan on Monday, May 4, 2020. He was 93. He is survived by his wife, Rosalinda Morgan and their two sons, Matthew R. Morgan and Alexander R.

  1. Hi Will, Thanks. I’m OK. I was out of it for two days after Matt’s death. Then decided to keep busy and work on the book about Matt’s foray at his last job discovering accounting fraud. I started it five years ago but stopped when Matt got sick. I just finished it. I also did two newsletters (for my HOA and the rose society) within the last ten days, reorganized the house and painted my bedroom, the first two weeks. I’m not done with all the paperwork about his death. It’s not easy but I’m coping and some of my old friends from way back called every so often and it helps. I’m giving myself a 3-month sabbatical from blogging and then I should be back to my old routine. Best regards.

  2. Thanks so much. I have not visited my site until today. I’m out of it as you can imagine but I’m getting better. Matt had been sick with kidney disease for five years and I was emphatic to the coroner that he did not die of coronavirus. I don’t want him to be part of the coronavirus statistics.

  3. That’s so sweet of you. Thanks. I’m OK really. Just taking a much-needed break. I wish I can go on vacation to the Philippines but with the coronavirus, it is not possible. Maybe next year.
