We are so sorry to hear of Irv's passing. We visited with him last June, but did not know he was in Morning View. I have called several times since then but did not get an answer so I thought he was just out somewhere. Our prayers are with you. Just know that he is in a better place and is reunited with Ruth. Bob and Donna Millhorn (Ruth's cousin).
