Celebrating the life of James Lee Morrison
Thank you for signing James Lee Morrison's Guestbook
Dear Cathy & Family,
Pat and I were so sadden to learn of "Mo's" passing. He was such a great, great man and a true friend and confidant.
Working with him as a junior officer in the Polygraph Branch in the early '80's was quite an experience for me. Not only did he teach me some of the finer points of polygraph, but the ins & outs of politics at the Headshed! He was a true mentor. When my family resided on Bolling AFB, Jim would come over for dinner almost ever week after work. He enjoyed playing with my young children and he bought virtually ever school project they were selling!!!
Some years later, I again had the the pleasure of working side-by-side with Jim at the NRO. He was a masterful writer and I leaned heavily upon his talents in that regard. It was blessed to have him in my life, as am sure most everyone who had the honor of knowing him feels that way too.
May God bless Jim, you and the family!
Love and Comfort be upon you,
BRUCE & PAT THOMSON

Ernie and I feel so privileged to have you as friends and be the "other Morrisons". Jim was such an inspiration to all of us. His faith set a wonderful example for all who knew him and he will be greatly missed. May God be your comfort.

Dear Cathy: We miss Jim so much; we cannot even begin to imagine the hole in your heart. Jim was a wonderful & inspiring man. It was no coincidence that God put him in our lives here at Murrells Inlet & LC3. We, like you, have faith that God will heal our hearts too. We are so sorry for your loss.

Last night you were occupying my mind in a strange way! I told Jim how blessed I was to have had those years @ HQOSI, thanks to you, which led directly to the life I have now! Little did I know at that time that your wonderful husband was already with the angels! I just received your text msg. while driving home. You are in my prayers, and I know (from personal experience) that our Lord will comfort you and give you strength especially during the coming days, weeks and months! Your Jim was such a loving outgoing person. I fondly remember the wonderful times we enjoyed at the hands of CHEF JIM in Waldorf!!! I know your faith and the lovely memories you both created will sustain you. Our deepest condolences also go out to your family.
Be brave and know you are loved!

Cathy, I can't stop thinking of you and Jim. I am remembering all the fun we had working at AFOSI HQ and away from the office. Jim always kept us laughing and especially well fed. My thoughts and prayers are with you daily. I know he is sitting on your shoulder watching over you as all of our angels do. I pray that you find peace in your memories and knowing he's in heaven. We would like to come to Jim's life celebration when it's set. Our deepest condolences. Love, Mary Kay and Randy

I'm so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He was a wonderful person and an inspiration to me and many others. I truly enjoyed working with you both at HQ, and visiting with ya'll several times when visiting the DC area. I remember vividly how we'd get visits from most folks at HQ when Jim cooked lunch for the Polygraph Office. Still the best Key Lime Pie I've ever eaten. Please let me know when the Celebration of Life service will be, and I'll do my best to be there. email@example.com. 770-713-8283

So sorry for your loss. This is also sad news to members of the extended AFOSI family, as well as to those of us who recall Jim's leadership in yet another agency prior to his retirement from government service.
