LANSING, Mich. – Senate Minority Leader Jim Ananich (D-Flint) issued the following statement honoring the life of former Senator Morris Hood III:
“We are heartbroken to hear of Sen. Hood’s death. Morris was a friend, a confidant and a spiritual rock for our caucus during his time in the Legislature. Everyone who served with him has a story of how Morris’ perspective on life helped them through a difficult personal or political situation.
“Morris was at his best when he was delivering his year-end speeches, encouraging us to stay close to our loved ones and to tell people that you love them. We should honor him by doing just that, every day, especially while the coronavirus continues to steal lives too early from us.
“Morris was a man with much more life to live, but the years he had with us he lived well. He will be missed.”
