As I looked further down the stone I saw the following verse:
1937 brought sad news, however. On March 13 of that year, Morey underwent an operation and received a poor prognosis - the surgeons had found cancer. He recovered from the surgery and returned to the office, continuing on the job until November of 1938. By that time the cancer had spread and he was unable to keep working. He declined steadily until January 26, 1939 when pneumonia set in. By then it was just a matter of time until Morey B. Lasky died at home at 3:15 AM on February 2, 1939.
Morey B. Lasky, 30 years old, of 5048 Glenwood avenue, died yesterday after a long illness. He was a member of the law firm of Alster & Lasky, with offices at 100 West Monroe street. Surviving are his widow, Sara, and a daughter, Gloria, 2 years old. Services will be held at 2 p.m. today in the chapel at 3600 Roosevelt road.
