“Our family, both in our home and in Quatro’s Pizza, couldn’t be more thankful for our community’s support,” Jocelyn Morrison, Blake Morrison’s sister, said.

Morrison’s family and Quatro’s staff continue to share their gratitude for the public’s support “during this difficult time,” according to the press release.

“So many people have made sure we know that they’re here for our family and staff as we work to fulfill Blake’s vision,” Jocelyn Morrison said. “It’s the people around us who keep our spirits up and our hearts full, and we’re surrounded by the best kind of people in Carbondale and Southern Illinois.”
