James Mor­ris’ niece Julie

Our so­cial me­dia com­mu­nity also con­tacted us in their droves to pay trib­ute to the mem­ory of Coat­bridge man James Mor­ris af­ter his brother Karl un­veiled a com­mem­o­ra­tive plaque at Air­drie’s Wester Mof­fat Hos­pi­tal.

James, 75, passed away last April fol­low­ing his 54-year stay at the hos­pi­tal, which is be­lieved to be the long­est of any pa­tient in a sin­gle Bri­tish in­sti­tu­tion.

James’ niece Julie com­mented: “Aww, my wee un­cle Jimmy; love and miss you ev­ery sin­gle day.

“There’s not a se­cond I don’t think of you; al­ways in my heart.”

Liz McGroarty re­sponded: That’s lovely Julie. Jimmy will al­ways be re­mem­bered.”

Ellen Low had the plea­sure of James’ com­pany on more than one oc­ca­sion: “I used to have a laugh with Jimmy most days while my mum was in hos­pi­tal. God bless.”

Irene McKen­zie said: “James was a true gent.”

Geral­dine Kennedy posted: “I had the plea­sure of know­ing James.”

Maria An­drews paid her trib­ute to James: “Miss Jimmy ev­ery day.”

While Jac­que­line McFar­lane added: “God bless him”.
