Maurice truly was our family CEO. His personality was get up early, keep confidentiality at the top and never miss out on good food and drink.  He was up and out of the house before those with a job.  One of his favorite sayings: “This is a one-time conversation”.  Maurice's favorite food was fruit by way of fermented grapes.
