“my wee uncle Jimmy; love and miss you every single day.”
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”.
