  1. I will sadly miss my old friend Norm. My heartfelt prayers extend out to family and friends. The suffering is over and he sits by the side of our Savior.

  2. When we received word that you had passed, we were filled with mixed emotions, sad that you had left us at such an early age but Happy that you are finally free of the things you had suffered with for most of your life. We’re sure there was a large celebration when you arrived in Heaven. You wlll always be remembered with your love for Jesus and the many people that came to know Jesus because of your witnessing to them.
    You will be greatly missed by many, Uncle Ray & Aunt Alice

  3. How sad we were when we read about Norms passing. My husband and I were just talking about him on Saturday. We will miss his happy personality and beautiful voice. We always enjoyed talking with him. Our prayers are with his family and we know we will see him again. I’m sure he is singing in that heavenly choir now. Norm, it won’t be long for the big reunion in the sky. What a wonderful time that will be.
