Dear Nancy and family. I know you are sad and feel the loss of Norm,your dad. He was a very kind and gentle man. You could always count on Norm to help any of us. I was stranded once at about six in the evening and I called Norm for help. He immediately came to my aid got my car started then we enjoyed a couple of beers. I never forgot his kindness and generosity. He treated me like family.
I will always remember Norm. May he rest in peace and God bless him with eternal happiness.
