Default Have you met Gary Morse?

Gary Morse has kept a low profile all these many years. I know that he is retired and his son and two daughters now run the show but still I'm curious to know if anyone on these boards has met Gary.

Also I would like to put to rest the rumor that Gracie Girl is Gary's mysterious twin sister.

Is he the guy wandering around in the "WWGGD" t-shirt?

Nope. He'd be the one wearing the WWTRPD or WWRLD t-shirt.

Couldn't resist.

No, like most residents I have not met Gary Morse. But we did have the opportunity to meet Harold Schwartz, his father-in-law. Mr. Schwartz was very personable and greeted us at the sales office and ask if he could do anything for us. I am sure Gary Morse is very nice----just a different personality from his father-in-law.

I think Gary is Harold's son. Not sure the circumstances surrounding the different names.

Harold is Gary's father. There a good explaination of the name change in the attached thread (look at the post by Skip)

He is brilliant business man.

My wife's nephew has been hired as a physician at a village health center.

On his last day of interviews Mr. Morse joined them for lunch (jeans and all).

He said Mr. Morse could not have been more humble and gracious and was quite impressed.
