Norm was a beloved member of our Valley Baptist Medical Center Auxiliary for 10+ years. Each season, he and Ann would personally deliver hundreds of wooden toys and birdhouses to our Pediatric Unit for our young patients. They would visit my office each year when they returned to the Rio Grande Valley, and it was always so nice to see them again. The feature I will remember the most about Norm was his infectious smile. I could tell that both he and Ann were receiving as much joy as they were giving through their service and gifts to our young patients. God bless them both for their generosity and faithfulness to their calling.

I will never forget the Canada 🇨🇦 Fly In Fishing trip! Both of our families had a great time. We caught plenty of fish to eat and bring home. I for one was happy when my Dad and Norm each smoked a cigar and the smoke settled in the slightly warm but humid air keeping the mosquitoes at bay!
