Not sure what to say?

Another kind and gentle man, leaves this earth to be with his Savior. I worked at Proctor Hospital and had the privilege to converse with your father and friend, regarding issues related to medical records and life. He was always patient, reserved, and generous with his time and advice or direction.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful Father with us.

All my best during this time.

Your father was such a kind, soft spoken person. I went to grade school with Mike and new you were brilliant. I feel my family has some responsibility for Christina ending up in Argentina, NOT Arkansas. That's a good laugh just when its needed. I treasured living next to them in the 90's, as well.

My condolences to the family of Dr Paul Norris, a fine father, gentleman and surgeon. He was a contemporary of my dad, and they practiced medicine in much the same way, with the patient's welfare the foremost consideration. He has earned his place in heaven!

Christina and family-
Thinking of you from afar, and wishing you the best in this difficult time.

My deepest sympathy to the family of a very fine surgeon and man. I was a nurse at Proctor Hospital and fondly remember working withDr. Norris. He was so respectful of the nursing staff and his patients. He was a very good listener and always made us feel that our observations were appreciated. Sincerely, Sharon Mollenhauer

Dr. Norris was a "godsend" for me. He prayed me through a time that almost cost me my life. For that I will be forever grateful. Your family has my sincere sympathy for your immeasurable loss. He will be greatly missed & fondly remembered for his warmth, care & dedication, as well as love for his profession.

Mike, Bob, Carolyn, and Christina,

I just this morning heard the news about your dad and wish that I were there with you. I'll be thinking of you, and I hope that time will help ease your sadness and allow you to focus on the happy times you all shared.
Sending you positive thoughts.

Love, Zip

Carolyn, my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Dad (& your Mom as I didn't realize she passed away in '08). Your Family is in my prayers.

Mike and the family, very sorry for your loss. My parents were very found of both of your parents. He was a very nice man and I am sure he will be greatly missed.
