Statement From Senate Majority Conference Leader John L. Sampson On The Life Of Senator Tom Morahan

July 12, 2010

It is with deep regret and sadness we mark the passing of Senator Thomas P. Morahan.
Tom was a friend and true statesman, and it was a privilege to serve in the same Chamber with him.
Senator Morahan showed all of us we could put partisanship aside and work together to build a stronger New York.
We will miss his cheerfulness, his courage, and his candor.
Senator Morahan was an inspiring and beloved figure in this body; only with time will we fully understand the goodness and decency of a man who always put his family and public service first.
On behalf of the Senate, I extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife Helen, his children and grandchildren, and ask all New Yorkers to keep Senator Morahan and his family in their thoughts and prayers.
