Diane -- Norman was a good friend and a great inspiration, I'm sorry he died.
We shared the love of his older brother, Emil, who also passed away last year.
Our thoughts are with you and your family.

We had the pleasure of meeting Norman many years ago at Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts. I (Marjorie) took a class in Creative Writing with him. My husband took another class,but we became good friends. it was more than a summer romance and the friendship continued until close to his death. What a joy and privilege it was to know him! This great genius, human being and a true "mensch".
We will miss him, but never forget him and how much we learned from him. Margie and Rabbi Jack

Quite a few years ago now I attended a theatrical experience in New York City based on works of Norman Corwin. I don't believe I'd ever heard of him previously, but what I heard that evening touched so profoundly and so eloquently both my head and my heart. I was smitten and awestruck by Norman Corwin, and I've never forgotten the effect that evening had on me. Many years later, I wrote an Email to Mr. Corwin on the occasion of his birthday, and I was thrilled beyond words to receive a reply. Thank you, Mr. Corwin. You have enriched us all beyond measure, and may your grace and common touch continue to enlighten generations.

Rest well, my friend. I just learned today of your passing, six weeks after the fact, because I was thinking of you--some 34 years after taking your Masters class in script writing at San Diego State University (1977). Thank you for caring about me, and inspiring me with your encouragement. You cared so deeply about the words, the story, the script. Coming up in radio, you learned to write for the ear first, the eye second. You believed in the power of script and story to touch hearts, open minds, entertain and enlighten. May your body of work and wisdom continue to influence this generation of journalists, script writers, poets and wordsmiths. Ken Shelton, editor/CEO, Leadership Excellence, Kens@leaderexcel.com

Diane: Please let me know if there is a memorial service. I am one of the last of the "Obers"; Norman's second cousin.
I live in Culver City. I saw Norman only 3 weeks ago; so sorry about his passing. Thanks for any info you can offer. Bob Green; (310)337-1899. e-mail
