Dear Simmang Family,
Wonderful memories of Lance being in my first grade classroom at Stanly and his big brother Eddie near by to make sure he was fine. Your whole family was always supportive of the school, teachers, and your children.
Thank you for allowing you family to be a part of our life. Robert also remembers the boys during VHS sports. The two of us are privileged to have shared a small portion or NOrman's life.
May God give you the grace and peace to carry on as Norman would have been proud.
Joye and Robert Tripson
