This is one of the best man and friend , we have every had , we were traveling buddies , we were waiting for the weather to get warm to go somewhere together now , and them this virus hit , so we knew it was going to be longer before we could go anywhere. We have the best memories ever with Norris and Marjorie, and was hoping to make more , I guess the Lord needed our friend now , he is a one in a million to us. I could call him when he was working in Nashville, and say , Norris can you do something for me , he would say yes before he even knew what I was going to ask, because he was going to do it no matter what I ask , that was just our Norris 😢 until we meet again my friend ❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻😢😢😢😢we love you always

He was always so kind and sweet to me. I was at Lowe’s trying to load some deck boards into my car and he came by and offered to drop them off at my house( we live close by each other) for me. When I got home. He and his son dropped by and not only did he bring the boards but they replaced the boards for me. I never forgot that. That was so sweet of them. I will miss him!!!!
