My sincere sympathy to Norman's family on their loss. I am a second cousin of Norman's and remember him fondly from years past as well as his parents and brothers and sisters. I remember many happy times and visits with all of them over the years. It was only yesterday that I heard about his passing and though it has been many years since I've seen Norman, I wanted to express my sympathy. He was always so nice and friendly with a big smile and I'm sure he will be greatly missed.

So very sorry to hear of Norman's demise as he was a very dear early childhood friend of whom I lost contact in life. We spent many memorable days together along with Ardella and his very loving family at the end of 76 street. I've often thought of Butch over time while living in cities far from Fairview.

My deepest sympathies to the family.

My deepest sympathies. I had the opportunity to meet and talk with your dad during the last election. I enjoyed him very much.

I offer my sympathy to Norman's family upon his passing. We worked together in Madison, IL for Dow, Consolidated Aluminum, and SCI. I regret his passing.
