The family members of the late Morgan Osmond would like to express our sincere thanks to our family and many friends for your thoughtfulness and kindness during the recent passing of our sweet little girl Morgan, who died fighting a long hard battle with cancer. We greatly acknowledge the many expressions of sympathy through cards; flowers, phone calls and donations to The Children’s Wish Foundations, plus donations to ones choice. Also the many online condolences. It is so much comfort to know there are a lot of caring people for us while we go through this most difficult time in our lives. It is impossible to thank everyone individually, but please know your kindness will never be forgotten it will always remain in our hearts with all our precious memories of Morgan.
