    I can not believe this tragedy!! I know he usually had his dog with him and if so, they are still together atleast. To the family, I am so severely sorry!! I was so shocked! My heart hurts for you all right now. EJ was a wonderful friend to me and he was good at keeping in touch with me after I moved away. Whenever he was in town from driving, he would always call me and sometimes would hang out together at the marina there in Sundance. I give you all my thoughts and prayers.

    We am so deeply saddened to hear the news of EJ. We have had many fun times together and I could always count on EJ stopping by for a visit when he was home. Sundance will not be the same without him for we all have lost a truly decent man. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow.

    I met Morris when he came through orientation in Jacksonville to come and work for our company Heartland Express. He was a joy to have in class. I remeber he was very quiet, but was still had a lot of energy. He will be missed by his family and friends. My prayers go out to his family and they are in my thoughts.
