I remember one of the many times Norm and Luisa hosted us for a lovely meal and we sat in their garden, that Norm directed us to a little abandoned hummingbird nest, by which he hung a little sign, “For Rent”. It was so cute and humorous...such a sweet man who loved the Lord! We were so blessed to know him and spend time with him and the family...❤️
Love you Luisa, Keivan and Justine and family...😥

I met Norm in 2014 after their move to Tennessee. I am honored to know him and his sweet wife Louisa. I loved how he would sit on the front porch of their cottage and talk about the clouds rolling by and how beautiful the trees were. I feel if Norm could see his trees daily it brought him peace and joy. I will never forget Norm and his sweet spirit. I rejoice that one day I will see him again.

Then Uncle met a wonderful women by the name of “Louisa” and not to forget the wonderful son that came along with that made Uncle so happy you could see it in his eyes every time we would visit. What a wonderful life Uncle Norm, I will miss you and all the great stories. I am sending prayers and love to the whole family!

Norman was such wonderful and loving husband and father. We will always remember his warm smile and gentle sense of humor. Jim and I are so fortunate to have counted Norman and Luisa as part of our extended family. We are holding him and Luisa and Keivan in The Light. Sallie and Jim Clotfelter
