It never seems fair when people we are close to die. I am very sorry Claire, to hear Norman recently passed. I will be praying for you and your family during this difficult time.

This is my favourite quote which I turn to often and hope it may someday provide some comfort to you.

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky,
But rather openings in Heaven where
our loved ones shine down to let us
know they are happy.

Our sincere condolences to Clare, Michelle and all family members!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all!

We have many fond memories of family events with Norman over the years! One of many is getting a Christmas tree with hot chocolate and games of cards to follow! A nice childhood memory!

We are sad that we will not be able to attend the service as we will be away! Norman and his family will be in our prayers!
