Very sorry to hear about Norm's passing. I have alot of great memories chatting with both Norm and Claudette. We always discussed current hockey events, especially the Greyhounds. I remember how excited they both were to go watch memorial cup games live a few years ago. It was always a pleasure seeing them in the store. Sorry we couldn't attend the service. Our thoughts are with you Kim and your family during this difficult time.

Kim, we are sorry for your loss. Hockey will not be the same without your Mom and Dad. They were the social center of our section and such a friendly pair. We will miss them both so much.
