Grandpa taught us a lot of valuable lessons in life. The biggest one that sticks with me to this day is to laugh. He'd always do something to make us grandchildren laugh or make us happy. I will never forget his smile or laughter, it will forever be apart of my life. I'm missing you so much grandpa.

This sunset photo was taken the evening my father passed. This was my dad's last sunset. I love you daddy and thank you for the beautiful sunset that evening. I believe God and you gave this to us.

I met Norman Jr. when he was only 16 years old. He was talkative, friendly, always laughing, and he loved to tease people. When he married Peggy, I became good friends with her too. Even after my divorce from his cousin, he and Peggy still considered me family. I loved visiting with them when they came to Colorado. and when I came to Oklahoma, for visits. Norman and Peggy gave me a variety of hats, and Coca Cola items. I will miss him very much. He was a great father, husband, and friend to so many.

Fly high in heaven with your ole Chevy. Your laughter joking and happiness will be missed. I will miss our endless conversations and projects. Especially our project of rebuilding a motor together with your grandson. There are too many memories to share and I thank you for those memories. Remember this is not a goodbye this is until we meet again. I love you daddy and I will miss you so much.
