Who is Morrie? Morrie is an old man, seventy-eight years old, when the story starts. He is a professor at Brandeis University and he is Mitch Albom's favorite professor. He taught for years and was the favorite for almost all his student. He is a very caring, loving, sweet, and he is a very peaceful gentleman. There aren't enough words in the vocabulary to describe this incredible man. He loves people and life. He is always teaching. He is not teaching math, he is not teaching how to read, and he is not teaching how the human body works, but what he is teaching is with passion.
