Dear Erica and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I have many fond memories of Norman showing me his wood crafts, especially a little wooden knee puppet he created. He was very clever. Much love to you all.

To Erica and family, So sorry for your loss. It was an honor to care for Norman. When he smiled, his eyes lite right up. He never complained and so easy to please. Erica, the commitment you had to your husband was beautiful to see. Today while we were getting ready for lunch, I walked by where Norman would sit, and a big smile came over me. We will miss you all. Know that it was an honor to care for Norman. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Nurse Linda

I love you always, Pepere. I'm having trouble putting into words how hard this is for me, yesterday we officially lost you & I cried all day. I'm lighting this candle until I feel my brain fog of grief lifts-today isn't the best moment to write all of our amazing memories together. I always dreaded this day, and nothing could have prepared me for it. I love you.
