Thank you is not enough to say to the man who helped shape my life. A friend and mentor, teacher and a power of example for myself and many others, you will be missed on this earth and never forgotten.
I still play the guitar and I still know the songs you taught us. I have a sense of discipline, and respect for myself and others that I learned from you. I have memories of the camping trip and churches traveled to, the Saturday music lessons, and choir practices and car washes and the friends you introduced me to and the pride and joy I felt knowing that I belonged somewhere and to someone and that I was loved. My life then and now would be less had I not known you.
I say thank you but I also try to live my life by the example you have shown me, try to give like you give and laugh like you laugh.
I Love you, Norman.
I send my deepest sympathies to Normans family. My heart weeps. He lived a wonderful and meaningful life and will live on in our memories.
