  • Photo of Morris Donkin White– You have not been forgotten. The photo was taken at Morris's home in Timmons, Ontario.  My mother (Verna K. Andrews) missed her uncle very much after he was killed; he was her favourite uncle. Mom always gathered we four children in the living room of our home every Remembrance Day to Honour the moment of silence in which she thought of her beloved Uncle Morris.  My mother died in 1986, and some day, I hope to honour the memory of both her and Uncle Morris by going to his gravesite at the Coriano Ridge War Cemetary.
