Dr Sandra was my doctor since 1996, when i moved her from Canada. She was always very attentive and supportive, with a great sense of humor. I'm stunned and saddened over her and Chris's passing. I will miss her dearly and always have her in my thoughts. My heart felt condolences to her and Chris's family and friends.

I've known Chris for many yrs as the  keyboardist with Eric Bolvin's Jazz group.  Chris always played my song ( "Belita") so beautifully. I'm grateful I had the chance to hear him play a  real piano; a Grand  Piano as recently as last month @ Cafe Pink House.  He was amazing. Most of all, he was so sweet and caring; a true Gentleman. I miss u so much Chris! My sympathies to both families.

Chris was the most important musical influence in my life over the past seven years; I consider him my dearest musical-spiritual friend, who played, collaborated, and guided with exceptional passion and detail. Musical perfection lived in those hands! By example, he taught me the true meaning of generosity. My heartfelt sympathies to Chris and Sandi's loved ones. They will both be missed.

Sandra Morse was my physician for the past seven years.  She was an ultimate professional, yet you always knew that she cared about you as a person rather than just as a patient. She had a great sense of humor as well. The medical and musical communities have suffered a great loss of these two talented and lovely individuals.  My sincere condolences to the Morse and Durbin families.

I will miss my Dear Friend of 33 years, Sandi Morse.  And, Chris as well.  Sandi was the most caring, sincere, humble, down to earth person I've know in all my years.  She helped me through so many hard times in life with her wisdom, humor, and caring.  People like this do not come along often.  I am so blessed to have known her.  Rest in peace, M Dear Friend.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of the death of my Dr of more than 15 years.  Dr. Morse was a kind, compassionate person and I am very sorry for her family, friends and co-workers.

I met Dr.Morse when she began practicing. The very 1st patient for her. She at that time diagnosed my problem and ever since I have been with her as a patient. I found her to be very warm and caring to my needs. The last couple of years very right to the point with me as a patient. My prayers to both families on this loss.  

Rest in peace Doc

We had the pleasure of working with Chris in a small jazz band.  He was such a talented person, and we enjoyed working with him.  We were very saddened to hear of his and Sandi's deaths.  They will both be missed.

I've cried, prayed to the Lord, I've lost a close person in my life and I'm mourning. I have always listen to my Dad, Mom and my Doctor. She was killed and I'm searching for why. She would tell me to, "Put on your big boy pants and get over it." and I did. RIP my friend.

I am stunned! Sandra Morse was my doctor for 10 years when I moved to the South Bay. A finer doctor would be difficult to find; she was an amazing physician with a terrific sense of humor and my trust in her was 100%. Her loss will be felt by many.
I send my deepest condolences to her family, and also to the family of her husband. What a tragedy...

I knew Sandy through mutual friends and became acquainted to her when my friend was dying of Leukemia.  She was amazingly kind to my friend and my friend shared with me she could talk with her about her life journey in a loving way.  I was shocked to hear about her untimely passing.
