Morry Spitzer was a wonderful comedian. His middle-school type of humor was inappropriate in it’s timeliness as well as the chosen types of audiences. Regardless, all enjoyed his sense of humor whether it was for the purpose of entertainment, or for coping with difficult situations. Morry was a loving and funny man.
