Don, I am going to miss you so much. You were such a sweet and caring brother. R.I.P. and always know that you are loved. I am going to miss our conversations over the phone. I’ll be seeing you. Shirley Mayes

Paw Paw I still can't believe you are gone man, this is unreal I know you are no longer in pain, but I wish you were still here. Going to miss calling you on my breaks from work, or about the Cowboys. You will forever be in my heart, and I will promise to continue your legacy. Love you Paw Paw! Courtney

Don Morgan could be found on the south home fence of every home Bremond football game, yelling for “Big Red” to win. Back in the day, I was beside him. We met at a little league baseball game in the summer of 1995. I had hired as the Bremond HS Principal. Don asked me where I was from. I replied, “Jourdanton (pronounced Jerdinton by locals). Don pushed off the fence and asked me to “say it again”. Turns out Don had attended public school there as a junior high and high schooler in the early 1960’s. In Jourdanton all races went to the same public school. When he left there and went to school in Bremond, he attended a segregated school, Love HS. Having in Jourdanton and having friends of white and Hispanic kids and white teachers only to leave and finish in an all black school had exposed him to possibilities.
In talking more, I told him I had taught and coached in Waller, Texas. While there, I worked with his brother Booker T. Morgan and we had a good relationship. I taught and coached Booker T’s boys. Plus I had taught and coached several of Don’s sisters kids by the last name of Austin and Guillory.
Don and his wife Tootsie became good friends and shared many stories. Don was a Christian man. He loved his extended family. He supported Bremond schools for his whole life. I will miss him.

I am going to miss you so much. I take pleasure in knowing that you are no long suffering. This is a hard pill to swallow. I’m broken into a million pieces. I will mourn you until I join you. You were the best dad in the world and you loved your family. Rest well, Pops, Paw Paw, Head, Headdog, Head, Head, Big Paw Paw, Deacon, Stagger Lee.. I love you, your only baby girl. Baby Puddin
