spokesman for every person who participated in Morgans Over America IV, I
thank you for your uncountable contributions in creating such a marvelous
Morgan family experience for us. We will never forget it and your help.
Your initial thoughts as a little boy dreaming of driving a car through a
Giant Sequoia tree led to your decision to do just that in a Morgan, and
to invite along a bunch of Morgan mates, many of whom you'd never met.
Since the early planning stages of Morgans Over America in 1990 through
the successful conclusion of Morgans Over America IV this month, your
wonderful enthusiasm has been obvious and has kindled Morgan driving
adventures and vast amounts of pleasure throughout the worldwide Morgan
Your skills at planning and arranging so very many details ensured that
each participant would have a terrific time; human nature is such that we
had to stop and ask ourselves "Why are things so much fun and going so
smoothly? Happenstance?" It took some of us a while to realize that it was
due to your care for us and your attention to the countless details we'd
never even think of.
Thanks also for your ever-present master mechanic skills. It seemed that
almost every time someone had a Morgan Malfunction, you were the first to
assist with the correct diagnosis, ready-at-hand parts and tools, and your
manual dexterity. I won't soon forget your offering up a small container
of every conceivable bolt, washer, and nut that could possibly come ajar -
and it seemed they all were stainless steel at that! Thus, Richard was
able to quickly secure his bouncing luggage rack, one side of which had
come adrift, while the best I could offer was a banana.
At the Great Finish Banquet in Basking Ridge, all of us wanted to show you
our very deep appreciation for all your hard work and your genuine caring
for each one of us. Everyone wanted to express our feelings in the very
best way, and some of us are more gifted at oral expressions than others.
We thought it quite appropriate for you to have one of the very first
Peter Morgan memorial medals, and we arranged with Jim Baker to make yours
in hallmarked sterling silver. You should receive it on or about June 30th
via UPS. To top off the proper medal presentation protocol, Jim showed
extraordinary restraint when he saw you at the races on the weekend, with
the medal in his pocket!
We hope you like the medal, and please understand that it represents a
small token of our deep appreciation of thanks, admiration, and respect.
Jeremy, you are a very special person!
for all Morgans Over America IV participants
