Just heard the news...not easy to lose someone you love. I've found it helps to remember the good times with a smile and not a frown. If you pay attention, he'll leave little signs he's always right there beside you. Much love Craig, Melissa, Family and Friends. I remember his laugh.

To my Dad Norman...My words can't even begin to tell you how much I'll miss you. As I called almost each were there to greet me, ask me how I was or let me know Mom's whereabouts...always with a smile. You were always bigger than life to me... We've gone through so much as a family, but you were always there to be supportive or take a stand....but in the end we knew we were loved, no matter the outcome. I will miss you so much.

Love, your daughter, Claire

Dear Kathy, Please accept our heartfelt sympathy and condolences on your huge loss. Norm was a terrific neighbor and a great guy. He was always willing ( really willing) to give advice and more importantly he would actually pitch in and help with the work. That's more than a little unusual these days. We are so sad for you and for all of your relatives and friends. We will miss the big guy. Love, Jim and Sherry Guzauskas
