Great loss for all

aquawise(zone 4 Utah)February 11, 2010

I know this is not the place to post this, But I feel like all of you trades are Family and so I want to share with you the passing of a great man and a beloved friend.

I am saddened by the lose of a great friend, Someone who has touched all of our lives. Most of you have one or have played with his wonderful Toy. Walter F. Morrison! The man that Invented the FRISBEE or Pluto Platter as it was first called. He has been my great Friend for many years. He passed away in his sleep Tuesday night at the age of 90 years. My 3 girls knew him as Walt the "No Good Fairy" as he liked to call himself, He always had a pocket full of Charleston Chews for them. We loved him dearly and although he is at peace and out of pain now we miss him, He leaves me and my family with many memories of the fun we shared with him! He died from cancer. I say a prayer of thanks for have know this man and being able to call him my friend. My God take him home and reunite him with is wife and soul mate who passed away year ago.

God Bless you & your family. He sounds like an awesome man. Thankfully you have lots of wonderful memories to keep him alive in your hearts. So many pass on alone, he was lucky to have you & your family. Make sure you always keep plenty of Charlston Chews around!
