Dear David , Davey, Barbara, and Ricky,
We were so sorry to hear of Norris’ unexpected death. I will always remember what a wonderful guy he was! We only met him a few times while visiting in North Carolina, but whenever we did, his friendliness and kindness radiated from him to us. He was a very special man! Our mom, Judy Blazonin, loved him dearly; and he was SO kind and good to her. She really enjoyed visiting with Norris! Perhaps the two of them are visiting together now ....with Ann and Jimmy and our dad, Frank. Know that your family is in our thoughts and prayers!!!
Sincerely, Debbie and Dave Pajula
