    • Dearest Morris and Family,
      It has been such a great pleasure knowing you and how much your family loves you and each other. I remember the 1st day I was introduced to you by Lacy was in your garden. The way your love shone for nature and for Lacy was an inspiration and so my own little garden thrives today because of you. My mom and dad are a little older than you and in reality it is their garden I took over. I get to them visit it often with them to talk of plants and more. Watching you with Lacy in your garden had me wishing for the same and so there it is. My mom and dad spend time in our little garden with me, just like you did with Lacy and I am all the better for it. I remember telling them about you, showing your stories and how approving they are about how your gardening tips inspired a deeper relationship with them. I’m gonna miss you. We all prayed so much for you and want you to know those prayers are extended to your family, too. For their best. Thanks for being our hero in a way and for showing what a loving family looks like. Your smiling face was always the best part of my day. Thank you. We are forever grateful.
      Love the Robles Family 🙏❣️

  25. What a legacy of love Morris leaves. Love that is evident in his children and their hearts for others. Lacy; for one, exudes that love in her life and love for all thing furry. His gentle care of his family transferred to his care for his yard and I will never see a plumeria that Morris won’t come to mind. No greater life you can live, than to leave this world as he did. Better and definitely more beautiful with the hearts that he touched.
    The promise remains- ♾️ we will see him again!

    Gods Blessing

I remember at your wedding how proud he was of you, always proud of you, with a twinkle in his eye when he talked about you all. He truly was a special man.

  64. Thank you for sharing your Dad with all of us Lacy and family. Without knowing him personally he is the type of man everyone hopes there kids end up being and also the one they marry. He was so welcoming and concerned about thousands of strangers like they were his best friends.

  77. Dear Morris and Family

    My name is Rafiq, subscriber all the way from Malaysia. My condolences to you
    and your family. Since my English is not good, so I am gonna make it short.
    Life is hard. With blessing from God, we can make it through with ease.
    Moving on is not easy. But one step forward at the time is a must.
    No matter how much you love him but God loves him more.
    And the most important is your love is pure from the heart.

    We Surely Belong To God And To God We Shall Return.

  78. Dear Lacey and Family,

    Sending you all so much love during this troubling time. You could just tell how sweet, funny and kind hearted Morris was. He brought a smile to my face as well as smiles to all your IG families face. He will truly be missed. I just know he’s up there now keeping Harvey company. He is ALWAYS with you and your entire family. Again sending you so much love from Maryland.


  79. So sorry for your loss. All the posts on IG with him were beautiful and heartfelt. He knew how much you loved him. Time will never heal the hole in your heart, I’m so sorry. When you are ready, please contact the State Attorney General and lodge that complaint on his care. They need to know how it all fanned out, and how to fix it for the future. Good luck. ❤️

  80. What a beautiful man, with a heart of gold. Clearly his family was beyond blessed. Sending so many hugs. Rest in peace and know you’ll be my prayers.

  81. My heart goes out to your family. Mr. Morris was an absolute light to anyone who was able to interact with him! Thank you so much Lacy for sharing him with us! His smile will forever be remembered. I loved seeing him care for his bird feeders and excitingly saying, “Hello!” to all of us! May he forever rest in peace & his light shine on!
    With love,
    Orlando, Florida

  83. Dear Morris, you were truly the sweetest. I am so glad Lacy shared you with us. Seeing you on screen never fails to make me smile and makes my heart big! Coming from a broken family myself – I’ve never really understood “family bonds”. You and Lacy showed me the most of what that can be, and I am so happy for you all. The sweetest, loving man. You passed on on my birthday and that broke my heart. But I shall celebrare you on my birthday each year too!

    Lacy- we love you. Sending you and your family the most love and biggest hugs!

    Sincerely – Rowena (rowena.rasidan)

  87. Want to take the time first of all thank you Lacy for sharing your dad with us on instagram. As you began to share more about your dad all of us began to live your dad as our own . I loved seeing your dad when you would post him on IG he always had a bright beautiful smile . I didn’t know him personally but loved him as my own dad . His passing was so shocked because I had so much faith he was going to pull through , but God had other plans. I will miss seeing yoor dad’s smile on IG, but his smile, love will live on just like Harvey. He’s know with your beautiful mom and Harvey with God liking down looking after you and your family . You will be missed but never forgotten 🩵🙏🏻

  88. Having being a follower of Fat cat Harvey’s I had the pleasure of knowing Morris. Lacy introduced her Dad to us all. Even though I’d never met him I started to feel like he was my dad aswell. Thankyou so much Lacy for bringing him into our lives and letting us share our love with him, like he did with us all. I send my thoughts, prayers and love to all of “Dad’s”(Morris) family and friends. Love from
    From New Zealand

  89. Sending my heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Lacy, Scott and family. Never had the good fortune to meet Mr. Dagerath but yet felt like I knew him through Lacy‘s instagram posts and could feel the love he had for Lacy and his genuine kind and caring heart. Sending love and prayers! Love Kim (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada) ❤️

  90. I am familiar with Morris via Lacy’s Instagram. He was always a joyous soul. I could feel his warmth from across the miles. I will always remember and miss his smile.

    My deepest condolences to the family. You remain in my prayers.

    There are no words anyone can ever say to make this feel any less painful, but there are words that may bring you some comfort and peace in knowing your father was and will forever be so loved. You are a beacon of strength and a clear image of what your father and mother strived everyday to create. Your family is so loved and so cared for from a distance. We may have not physically met yet or be there but just know you have a virtual family hugging you and praying for each of you during these hard moments. Your father is resting and is now watching over each of you and I’m sure he is sending you so many hugs and kisses and is there with you in spirit, always. We are here for you, take your time to grieve, it’s necessary to heal, and when you are ready we will all be here waiting for you. We are supporting you and we love you all so so much, God has gained an Angel🪽

  100. I am so sorry to hear about your dad passing. I honestly enjoyed seeing him on your stories and how happy he was to see us! There are no words to make you feel better but he was such a sweet soul to see on my stories. He actually reminds me of my own dad. I would even show my sister how similar they seem so she also enjoyed your content! I only saw him sometimes but I know how happy you were to be with him and my heart breaks for y’all. I hope y’all can find peace and comfort until then, we’ll be praying for y’all.
