Moree was from Sylvester Ga and played in Kings room with astipe and HD Kelley. He did move from Kings room with the rest of us, but stop playing on the net after a while. He was very good old time natural player and knew several tricks. He was a fine man, peanut farmer, and doll house builder.

Moree passed away February 3 2015. We chatted from time to time. He sent picture to me of his doll houses. The Ga, AG put him out of business, something about taxes lol lol.  Moree died of cancer on hospice. Albert he was one good checker friend on the net, I'll miss him.

Albert can you pass this along to the guy that has the e-mail names. Thanks, Jack Langston
