Ashley Morris passed away this morning. Geek, educator, blogger, musician, but more importantly, husband, father and a great friend of New Orleans, is gone. I’m going to miss you, Professor Morris, you were a big man in so many ways.
It is needless to say that Ashley’s death is a huge blow to the New Orleans blogger community, but this is also where our community can be at its best. By helping its own. What Ashley would want is that we are there for his wife and three small children. Let us be at their service.
