Dear Anna,

We are mourning with you in the loss of your dear Norman.

May the Lord give you strength for today, hope for tomorrow,
and comfort knowing that even as you have said "good-bye" for now,
He has said "welcome home" forever to Norman.

With Heartfelt Sympathy and Prayer

I’lll always remember how Norman welcomed me to the apartment complex when I moved in, in June 2004. I will greatly miss him. He always had a smile.

Mere words cannot express my sincere condolences in the loss of our friend and neighbor. Norman was and always will be a part of the Hickory Place family. We miss him already. The love he showed his wife Anna was written all over his face every time he talked about her. My fondest memory of Norman is when we took a trip to Carowind's for a gospel concert and he got right up to the front of the staged and sang and praised the Lord with so much zeal and joy. He loved gospel music. Norman didn't ask for much but was always grateful for any assistance provided. I pray that God will comfort the family during this difficult time. Please let us know if we can be of assistance in any way. With sincerity and Love, Hickory Place staff and residents
