Richard and Zake


We have been in the midst of a terrible tragedy over the last few weeks.

The unexpected tragedies are the worst, and when they happen to the nicest people who are committed to doing the right things, then it is even more devastating.

Richard Morgan (my valued friend and fellow realtor at Klinge Realty for the last five years), and his wife Anneliese, have devoted their lives to raising their 21-year old son Zake Morgan the right way, and it showed.

It is very sad to report that unfortunately a few weeks ago, while enjoying his junior year of college in South America, Zake passed away while swimming in the hostel’s pool with friends.

Over 200 people attended Zake’s Celebration of Life yesterday, and half of them were those who knew Zake from school.  Kid after kid spoke about the warmth and depth of the friendship they had with Zake – he was beloved.

He had a great outlook on life, and everyone loved him – check out the comments and pics by clicking on the “Posts to Page” in the left-hand column:


Those who would like to send a private message to Richard and Anneliese can email them here: richard@klingerealty.com

They intend to set up a scholarship fund in Zake ‘s name at his alma mater, San Dieguito Academy.  Anyone who would like to donate, please click below – any amount would be appreciated:


Most of all, let’s appreciate how delicate life can be, and hug those around you a little tighter.
